Students who are unable to complete student teaching, and students who complete the upper level methods courses but no longer wish to pursue initial licensure must meet with the department chair to discuss appropriate course substitutions. The substitutions must include three credits at the 300 level chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor. Students who elect to forgo initial licensure will not be recommended for certification by Knox College.

In addition to the above majors, the department also offers programs leading to certification in three special content areas-Art (K-12), Music (K-12), and Language (K-12). In general, a student may receive certification in a special content area by completing a content major, a major in Educational Studies, Secondary (replacing 318 with 319), and also completing extra courses as required in order to ensure preparation in the full range of the certificate. See the Music section of this catalog for a detailed description of the Music Education program.
