Graduate Certificate

Initial Teacher Professional Preparation (online availability)

The Graduate Certificate in Initial Teacher Professional Preparation is designed for students who have secured a teaching position, plan to obtain a teaching position, or have a temporary teaching certificate. The program prepares candidates to meet State Department of Education requirements through a sequence of professional core courses. The goal of this program is to enable educators to have successful teaching experiences in grades 6-12 classrooms. Courses will be offered throughout the academic year. With the exception of the special methods courses, certificate courses are offered every semester.

If your career plans include pursuing state-regulated professional licensure or certification in your chosen field, it is important to become educated on the credentialing requirements of the state in which you hope to practice.
