Economic Education Certificate
Department of Economics, College of Business Administration
The Economic Education Graduate Certificate is to assist high school instructors who teach economics to obtain the 18 graduate credit hours needed to teach economics as a dual enrollment course. The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) requires that teachers must have at least 18 graduate credit hours in a given subject to teach classes that can be considered dual-enrollment. The Economic Education Graduate Certificate is designed to expand high school teachers’ economics knowledge both in theory and practice so they can deliver high quality classes at the college-level.
