Accelerated Licensure and Master's Program
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.
