The State of Ohio Department of Education administrative code permits endorsements for teaching license holders to extend the scope of their licenses. Cincinnati Christian University currently offers an Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement for teachers to add to their licensure.

Valid for teaching all core academic content areas in grades four and five, this endorsement may be added to an Early Childhood P-3 teaching license. Our program includes a minimum of nine semester hours of study which align with the Ohio Academic Content Standards and the Common Core Content Standers for grades four and five. Completing the program’s requirements for this endorsement and passing the required Praxis II test will qualify the candidate to teach fourth and fifth grade in the state of Ohio.

The program consists of the following:
• One Saturday morning orientation
• A minimum of three on-line courses which include Science, Mathematics, and Social Studies content
• Two Saturday field trips in the Cincinnati area
• A one week on-site course during the summer at Cincinnati Christian University’s Main Campus which includes field experience in the Cincinnati Public Schools
