UNLV’s Alternative Route to Licensure (ARL) programs provide a fast track into teaching for individuals who hold a bachelor's degree outside of education. Students in these comprehensive programs can earn a conditional Nevada teaching license after one semester (based on successful completion of licensing requirements) and continue through the Nevada standard licensing requirements and Master of Education (M.Ed.) requirements for early childhood education, special education, and curriculum & instruction.


Available concentration areas include:

  • Early childhood education (birth-2nd grade)
  • Elementary education (K-8th grade)
  • Secondary education (7th-12th grade, teaching fields English, math, science, social studies)
  • Special education (K-12th grade).


Benefits of the ARL program include:

  • Expedited track to a full-time teaching position
  • Credits that count toward teaching licensure requirements and a master's degree
  • Excellent job prospects in Nevada and Clark County School District
  • Ability to teach in CCSD, private schools, and charter schools
  • License reciprocity options for states outside of Nevada
