Multicultural Coursework Requirement

NIU's common requirements for teacher certification include successful completion of course work and/or experience that contribute directly to an awareness of cultural diversity.

All Northern Illinois University teacher education programs are expected to ensure the acquisition of knowledge and skills necessary for working with culturally diverse persons. In addition, these programs must provide learning experiences that enable candidates to be responsive to the education of children and youth with differing cultural backgrounds and experiences.
