Content Area Advising

Content Areas are the main subject areas for Secondary and World Language majors in the Teacher Education programs. It is both a licensure and degree requirement. Graduate students must consult with their Content Area Advisors for a transcript review to determine if deficiencies exist in their content area and if additional coursework is needed. Content area courses must be completed before student teaching.  

Licensure Requirements are subject to change for the discretion of the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
