Teacher licensure programs are offered in art education and music education at the undergraduate (Bachelor of Science) and graduate (Master of Arts) levels. A unique feature of these programs is that each is offered in cooperation with a University Circle Institution—the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Music.

In addition, several departments within the College of Arts and Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Classics, English, History, Mathematics, Modern Languages and Literatures, and Physics) participate in the Case Western Reserve University/John Carroll University Collaborative Program to prepare students for state licensure. Bachelor of Arts degrees in these departments are awarded by Case Western Reserve University, and licensure is recommended by John Carroll University.

Teacher licensure programs at Case Western Reserve University are approved by the Ohio Department of Education and lead to teaching licenses recognized by more than 40 states. In addition, the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) accredits the music education program.
