Whether you want professional development or training credits towards a degree, teacher licensure, or a teaching endorsement, our flexible course formats are designed to reach and teach you where you are via lecture capture, live simulcast, and online. Our offerings continue to grow and adapt in response to the changing needs of K-12 constituents throughout our state.
To best serve Nevada’s diverse and continually broadening education community, we provide a fast-track post-baccalaureate teacher education program, Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) endorsement, bilingual endorsement, technology endorsement, 2+2 agreements with state community colleges, and Alternative Route to Licensure (ARL) programing.
Our active 2+2 agreement offers Western Nevada College (WNC) students the opportunity to seamlessly transfer, complete upper level education courses, and earn a bachelor’s degree from Nevada State College without leaving Northern Nevada. In addition, WNC students who earn an Associate of Arts degree can transfer their degree credits to Nevada State to begin coursework toward a bachelor’s degree. Formal programs with other state community colleges are coming soon.
If you’re looking to make an impact in the Clark County School District, our SoE ARL program provides you rigorous pedagogy and content courses, so you can BE LICENSED to teach in high-need areas such as secondary math and science. Nevada State became an ARL Partnership Institution in 2004 and we are honored to serve the K-12 education needs of Clark County.
