The Endorsement-Only Programs are designed for certified teachers in pursuit of additional Sate of Iowa Teaching Endorsements. Endorsements are offered in both K-8 (elementary) and 5-12 (secondary) teaching levels.
Courses for the endorsements are offered on Drake's main campus and at several locations around the state, as well as online or in a blended format.
