Thank you for your interest in the Early Childhood Alternative Master of Arts in Education Program (AMP) leading to initial state certification. To address the evolving needs in teacher education in the state of Alabama, we have paused admissions into the program at this time so that we may revise our current offering to meet these evolving needs. We plan to resume accepting applications in August 2024 for our revised Alternative Master’s Program for the Fall 2025 cohort.

If you are interested in our traditional Master of Arts in Education (in either Early Childhood Education or Elementary Education), please seeherefor more information. Please note that the traditional programs are only available to teachers who already have initial certification.
