Goal Achieved: 18 Graduate Credits/Economics
#1
Hello Everybody!

One of my goals for this year was to reach 18 graduate credits in economics.

Well, my instructor for the econ class that I am taking just posted final grades and it is an A for two graduate credits.

That means I have reached 18.

Goal Achieved.  Smile

I have been a teacher for twenty years. About five year ago, I started teaching high school economics. I love it. It is now probably my favorite subject to teach. I eventually came across two organizations that offer straight up graduate economics credit via the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs:

One is the Foundation for Teaching Economics:

https://www.fte.org/teachers/teacher-programs/

The other is Economic Literacy Colorado:

https://econlitco.org/

There may be others. I have found that economics teachers are extremely well-organized and these courses are really great. FTE offers many online courses. These would be great for non-teachers. They have really great instructors and are quite interesting. Economic Literacy Colorado hosts really great Saturday workshops for a half credit each. These are subsidized. I live in Michigan, but I've gone to several on cheap flights from Detroit and it doesn't cost me much. The train system in Denver is fantastic and I just find a cheap hotel somewhere and then take the train to the sessions. FTE also runs weeklong summer econ classes at elite colleges like Oberlin and Tufts. They provide stipends so they end up being close to free. Really great programs. I attended one and the professor was a Clemson professor who had worked as an adviser to President George W. Bush. I can't say enough about these organizations.

Again, UCCS transcribes the credits. Here is their page:

https://www.uccs.edu/lases/full_program_listings

I earned all of my 18 graduate credits in econ. from UCCS as well as a grad. cert in economics education.

Will this be sufficient to teach economics at the college level?

Yes. It would meet the minimum requirements.

This is the page from the State College of Florida. It lists the faculty certification parameters for economics. SCF is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. They tend to be the most stringent in terms of these qualifications.

http://www.scf.edu/Academics/FacultyCert...nomics.asp

https://www.scf.edu/Administration/Accre...rnance.asp

Note that the 18 subject area credits presume an individual already has a master's degree of some sort. Also note that reaching the minimum qualification does not necessarily mean that a candidate is a competitive candidate. It just means that the candidate meets minimum requirements.
