Can I Earn an Online Degree if My Field Requires Licensure?

Yes, there are some programs that qualify you to sit for licensure examinations. For example, Regent University's Cross Categorical Special Education Master of Education program combines online courses with an initial three and a half week summer residency. The program results in a K-12 initial Special Education teaching license with licensure reciprocity in 48 states. Liberty University's Master of Arts in Professional Counseling meets the licensure requirements of the National Board for Certified Counselors, the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs, and most state boards and therefore will enable you to enter the field of professional counseling. Such programs generally require some amount of campus residency or supervised field work. When considering such a program, it's not only important to ensure that the program is accredited but also that it meets licensure criteria. Be sure to check with the appropriate licensure agency before enrolling in such a program.
