Certificate only or a Master of Arts Degree Prerequisite:

Whether a student is seeking a Certificate only or a Master of Arts Degree, GLWI’s program is conducted at a graduate level. Thus, students should have a bachelor’s degree prior to admission to the program sequence, although there is no specific major of study or degree area required.

Certificate Completion Program Prerequisites:

While training is important, we at Great Lakes Waldorf Institute (GLWI) want to honor and acknowledge your years of classroom teaching experience as well as any training you may have already completed as we help you work toward your Waldorf Teacher Training certificate of completion. With these goals in mind, we have designed a Certificate Completion Program (CCP) for active teachers without a formal Waldorf training credential who wish to earn an AWSNA affiliated certificate of completion.

In order to apply for the CCP for Experience Educators, teachers must have at least 8 years of Waldorf classroom teaching experience at an AWSNA affiliated Waldorf School. If a practicing teacher is without a bachelor's degree, they may appeal to the Core Faculty to be admitted to the CCP only - but will not be eligible to receive credit towards a Master's degree. To earn a GLWI certificate of completion, at least 16 (40%) of your credits must be earned through our program, including up to a possible 10 credits (25%) awarded by GLWI as result of previous classroom teaching experience.

Now Enrolling:

If you are seeking to earn a certificate of completion in Waldorf Teaching from GLWI with or without a Master of Arts Degree in Education with a Waldorf Emphasis in Partnership with Mount Mary University, you will need to complete a Student Application Form and submit the required attachments.

Review the documents above and use the GLWI Student Application Form 2017 to begin your relationship with us. Prospective CCP students please submit both the GLWI Student Application Form 2017 and the CCP Application Form.
