MC-EA is a teacher education program for developmental range 6 through 12/13.  Students pursuing this major may earn an MC-EA certification.  This program is housed in the Department of Educational Studies which is itself housed within School of Education (SOE).  MC-EA majors must complete a certifiable minor. 

Students are encouraged to declare their education major as soon as they realize they want to be an educator, typically, but not necessarily,  in their first year at UW-La Crosse.  Once an education major is declared, students are assigned to a specific academic advisor in their chosen major.  Though students may declare MC-EA as their major at any time after enrollment at UW-La Crosse,  students must apply to be accepted into any teacher education program.  In addition to coursework, students must complete the portfolio and content test requirements. The Eligibility Criteria and a link to the online application are available on the Admission requirements page.
