Student Testimonial

After completing the non-licensure M.Ed. program in Curriculum and Instruction 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!"
