Post-Baccalaureate Program of Study

For students seeking certification in elementary and secondary education, a program of study is determined and filed with the School of Education post-baccalaureate advisor.

For students seeking certification in art, music, physical education, and technology education, a program of study is determined and filed with the chair of the department that offers their program. The program of study (which must be approved by the office of the School of Graduate Studies) ensures that all certification requirements are satisfied and becomes a contract between the student and his or her advisor. The program of study is subject to revision to address any changes in the state of Connecticut certification regulations.

Post-baccalaureate students must meet the following general education requirements:

  • At least 39 credits of general education course work including a U.S. history survey course, and
  • Courses in each of the following areas: English, mathematics, natural sciences, and social sciences, and one course in foreign language or fine arts.

Coursework in developmental or life span psychology is a prerequisite for the professional program.
