The undergraduate Education Double Degree program enables students to earn two undergraduate degrees concurrently—one in their chosen field and the second in Education (BA or BS degree). The Education Double Degree in teacher education is an undergraduate pathway to teacher preparation available to all OSU students. The BA/BS in Education can only be obtained in conjunction with a BA/BS in a student’s chosen field.

The Double Degree program has two stages. The first stage, Pre-Education, allows students to take foundational education courses and required content-specific classes without prerequisites. These classes can meet baccalaureate core requirements and elective credits. The second stage, Professional Level, consists of 40 credits focusing on a particular authorization level. The Professional Level includes pedagogy classes and student teaching. Students earn their second degree (Education BS/BA) and simultaneously earn an Oregon Preliminary Teaching License in their chosen content area and authorization level.

First-years, sophomores, juniors, and seniors may enroll in one or more of the pre-education courses at any time during any year of their studies. There are no initial prerequisites for these courses and they may help students decide whether teaching is right for them. To enter the Professional Level of the Double Degree students need to have completed required course work, pass a content exam, and pass the Civil Rights in the Educational Environment Exam. The full application information is on the College of Education website. It is strongly recommended that students meet with the College of Education Double Degree advisor early in the Pre-Education level and at least a year prior to their application to the Professional Level.

Karla Rockhold is the Double Degree program advisor, 541-737-4661, karla.rockhold@oregonstate.edu.
