Each student must complete at least one endorsement; however, having more than one endorsement makes you more competitive after graduation. As a Drake student, you'll work with an advisor to determine which undergraduate courses may count toward an endorsement area. The number of courses you will need to take to complete an endorsement will depend on how many of your undergraduate courses fulfill state requirements.
Endorsements in math, science, talented and gifted and ESL/ELL are all in high demand in the job market. A coaching endorsement is also a popular option for individuals completing the program.
