Postbaccalaureate

Overview

The postbaccalaureate program option is available to those who have already received a bachelor's degree and who have decided to pursue a career in teaching. This route to certification varies based upon the teacher candidate's past education experience and their choice of content area. A postbaccalaureate student will need to indicate whether they are interested in Elementary or Secondary level certification and specify their content area(s). The core coursework for Elementary Education will be required through the Education Department for those who are interested in working with K-8 grades, and the core coursework for Secondary Education will be required for those who are interested in working with 7-12 grades. The prerequisites for the education courses may be required depending upon the teacher candidate's past coursework. The Education Program sequences are provided below. Content areas, for example biology, will determine coursework that is needed in addition to the education core. 

Please contact our Education Advisor, Tiffany Dixon, for more information about our programs, the application and planning your coursework.
