Degree Programs

Our teacher certification degree programs in Career and Technical Education allow you to earn either a Bachelor's (BSEd) or Master's (MEd) degree, along with completing the Pennsylvania Department of Education requirements for certification in at least one subject area.  

Non-degree Programs

These programs are offered as non-degree, which means no bachelor's or master's degree is awarded upon completion of this program.  You will complete only the coursework and in-service necessary to meet Pennsylvania's Department of Education certification requirements for the associated teacher certification.  

For graduate non-degree programs, you must currently hold your Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in an approved subject area.
