Licensure AND Master's Program (LAMP)
Accelerated LAMP Resources
The Licensure and Master’s Program (LAMP) is a unique blend of theory with practice, developed and implemented by an interdisciplinary team of educators. This one-year licensure and master’s program is designed to meet the needs of already degreed adult learners and is a comprehensive graduate program. Individuals who already hold a baccalaureate degree in a major other than education can become a licensed teacher in either middle school (grades 4 -9) or adolescent to young adult (grades 7 -12), in the State of Ohio, in one year. LAMP graduates earn an initial four-year resident educator license and a Master of Education degree.
LAMP is a highly competitive and rigorous program that begins every fall semester and ends the following summer in June. During that year, LAMP Interns serve a one-year internship with a mentor teacher in a classroom setting while completing the required coursework on The University of Toledo’s campus.
Students who are accepted into the program will complete a LAMP application essay and a formal interview. Student selection is based on content GPA, overall GPA, a successful interview, essay review, and passing of the Ohio Assessments for Educators' Content Assessment.
The first step is to complete the LAMP Application for Review of Coursework.
If you are seeking licensure in a science or math concentration for Adolescent to Young Adult, you may be eligible to apply for the Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship. For more information visit http://utoledo.edu/education/grants/wilson
