Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement

Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement (ECE, grades 4-5)

This 10-hour graduate-level endorsement enables candidates who hold an Ohio Early Childhood license to teach all core subjects in Grades 4-5. The ECE 4-5 endorsement can be used as a concentration in the M.Ed. Transformative Education degree, which is a merged degree offered by the Department of Educational Leadership and the Department of Teacher Education. A passing score on the OAE on the Elementary Education exams (Test Codes 018 and 019) is also required.
