Bethel provides an opportunity for students who complete a special education license to add a general education teaching license. Students who complete their Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) during their special education student teaching placement will not be required to also complete an edTPA in their general education license area. The required curriculum for a teaching license as an addition to a qualifying Minnesota Special Education teaching license comprises a 27—28 semester credit sequence of courses. The entire course sequence for the special education license must be completed for eligibility for the teaching license.
