Licensure Programs

*Leads to licensure by the Arkansas Department of Education*

Southern Arkansas University is not responsible for courses required for licensure if the state changes requirements after the student’s program is approved. Earning a master’s degree from Southern Arkansas University does not mean that the degree recipient will receive a license. The Arkansas Department of Education or other licensing agency determines who will receive a license.

Note: For a candidate holding a graduate degree, Southern Arkansas University will review the candidate’s credentials on an individual basis and develop a program of study based on licensure requirements.
