Post-Baccalaureate Programs Leading to Teacher Certification Only

Students who already hold a bachelor's degree may pursue teacher certification through our post-baccalaureate programs. These programs prepare students for teacher certification and do not result in a master's degree. Students may seek certification in the following fields:

  • Elementary education;
  • Secondary education in the following subjects: biology, chemistry, earth sciences, English, French, general science, German, history/social studies, Italian, mathematics, physics, and Spanish;
  • All level subjects: art, music, physical education, TESOL, and technology education;
  • Special education.

Admission to a post-baccalaureate teacher certification professional program depends upon and follows admission to the School of Graduate Studies. Post-baccalaureate teacher candidates must meet all course and fieldwork requirements specified in particular teacher preparation programs and governed by state of Connecticut regulations. This includes satisfying certain general education and subject-matter major requirements.
