Licensure Programs

*Leads to licensure by the Arkansas Department of Education*

A student’s plan of study is designed to meet licensure requirements according to Arkansas Law. 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.
