Student Testimonial

After completing the non-licensure online Masters in Education degree program in Teaching and Learning through Liberty Online, Chris Mitcheltree began pursuing Pennsylvania licensure for supervision of curriculum and instruction.

“Because Liberty’s degree plan allowed me to choose a lot of my courses, I looked up those required to fill a curriculum and instruction degree [in Pennsylvania] and took the Liberty courses most closely related to those. I sent all my coursework and course descriptions to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, took the state Praxis exam — and waited. I finally got that beautiful piece of blue paper with the gold seal in the mail! They are not requiring any additional classes. Liberty did it all!”
