German 7-12, Post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification

World Languages and Literatures |View/Print PDF

The Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Programs offer a defined set of courses beyond the undergraduate degree to prepare candidates for Connecticut teacher certification, though they do not lead to a degree. These programs require a bachelor's degree for admittance. However, since these programs are composed of undergraduate coursework, they are offered as undergraduate programs. These programs can be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis.

Candidates must maintain good standing throughout the teacher education program and meet all State requirements for certification (state licensure exam, online modules, etc.) in order to be recommended for certification to the State Department of Education. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with Connecticut's teacher certification regulations and keeping abreast of changes to those regulations. If state regulations change before completion of a certification program, students will be required to meet these new regulations in order to receive the University's recommendation for certification to the State Department of Education
