Certificates and Endorsements

Certificates in International Education

As a demonstration of UNF’s commitment to global citizenship, the College of Education and Human Services offers two separate post-baccalaureate certificates in International Education; one at the undergraduate level and one at the graduate level.

It should be noted that this is not a stand-alone certificate-- rather taken concurrently with a degree program in teacher education or the professional education minor.

Students admitted into any teacher education degree seeking program should apply for admission into the certificate program in the same manner they would be applying for a second or dual major. 

It will appear online as a secondary program with the major in education serving as the primary program.

Endorsement in ASL

The courses offered for the American Sign Language (ASL) K-12 Educator Endorsement are designed to provide teachers of American Sign Language in the K-12 setting the opportunity to complete the additional courses required by the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) for ASL Endorsement. The courses are offered fully online (in bold) with some courses also offered traditionally. We aspire to prepare students and current educators who embrace diversity, respect, equity, and equality of opportunity within ASL communities.
