New regulations from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) require high school teachers to hold a master’s degree in the field, or a master’s degree plus 18 credit hours of graduate coursework in a specific discipline. The “stackable” structure of this program can help you meet those standards.

If you need both discipline-specific coursework and a master’s degree, this degree meets the requirements. If you already hold a master’s degree in a field other than political science, you can meet HLC standards by completing the Graduate Certificate in Political Science.
