Note on Licensure


Walden’s Graduate Certificate in College Teaching and Learning focuses on the development of scholarly teaching knowledge and skills. It does not necessarily provide individuals with all of the course credits required to teach in a particular academic discipline; therefore, additional subject-specific graduate credits may be needed. Individuals are responsible for ensuring that they meet the credentialing requirements of the institution where they want to teach. Walden makes no representation or guarantee that completion of this coursework will permit an individual to teach at a higher education institution.
