Teacher Certification

Teacher Certification

Teacher Certification is not a major.  Students seeking Teacher Certification will choose a major within the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business or School of Education.  In addition to any applicable courses for your major, Teacher Certification students may take one or more of the following courses in the first semester, depending on availability:

  • EDTE 101 Foundations of American Education
  • EDSE 150 Psychology of Children with Exceptionalities

Core requirements will vary depending on your interest in both major, and level of certification (elementary, secondary, special education, etc.).

For program information and course descriptions, please visit the on-line Undergraduate Catalogue. You will follow the 2015-16 Undergraduate Catalogue.  This catalogue is currently under construction but should be posted sometime this summer.  In the meantime, please refer to the 2014-15 Undergraduate Catalogue, as much of the information is the same.
