Work-Based Learning, Graduate Endorsement
Graduate Endorsement in Work-Based Learning
Why Pursue This Program
The online Work-Based Learning, Graduate Endorsement program is designed for teachers who are involved in work-based and vocational programming.
An endorsement in work-based learning prepares and supports teachers involved in work-based and vocational programming.
A work-based learning supplemental endorsement for Nebraska requires 3 credit hours of classroom instruction and 1,000 hours of verified work experience other than teaching. Students pursuing certification in other states must check with their State Department of Education for certification requirements.
Note: This endorsement is offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
School districts nationally must have vocationally endorsed teachers to apply for Federal Perkins funds for innovation and improvement of a work-based learning program.
What's it like to take a program online?
Quality learning experience
The University of Nebraska has offered distance education courses for more than 100 years so you can expect a quality, rigorous experience. Online courses are often highly interactive with faculty and students communicating through e-mail, discussion forums and chat groups. You’ll have direct access to world-class faculty – researchers who are experts in their fields or practitioners with real-world experience. Also, you’ll be part of a community of learners and can benefit from the perspectives of students from across the globe.
Online learning gives you the flexibility and freedom to attend your classes wherever is convenient to you. You can save time and money by being able to continue to work and by avoiding relocation or travel costs. You will be required to complete assignments in a certain timeframe, but in most instances, you can log in and complete coursework during the time of day that works best for you. You aren’t tied to a specific class time.
Service you expect from a leading University
Online learners at the University of Nebraska have access to the same student services available to on-campus students. An academic adviser will guide you along your journey, library services are available to help you excel in your program and career services are available when you are ready to take your next step. These are just a few of the services in place to help you succeed.
