Grace’s Answer

depends on the state. for example, MN has a tiered teacher license structure. in MN you can get a Tier 1 teacher license if you have any kind of bachelor's degree. but requirements for a Tier 3 license is different. a lot of colleges have a 4 year undergraduate teacher prep program. in many states, you do that and pass licensing exams, and you can start working as a teacher after graduation.

Melody’s Answer

Greeting Genesis,

Generally speaking, it takes 5 years to complete the teaching degree and licensing. Some programs seek to shorten this time, but they are usually for those with a 4-year degree. You are coming out of high school; therefore, you must complete a BA in education with a student teaching practicum and take the state-required exams for licensure. Hope this helps. Contact your guidance counselor or a trusted teacher. They could provide some much-needed information from your specific state.

Ursula’s Answer

It usually takes 4 years. You need a bachelors degree and that usually takes 4 years depending on how many courses one takes per semester in college.
