Teacher Education/Administrative Certification Programs

Email:TeachEd@rci.rutgers.edu

Teacher certification can be achieved through the successful completion of one of seven state-approved programs. Information regarding programs and requirements may be obtained from the Office of Teacher Education Programs, Room 132, Graduate School of Education (732/932-7496, ext. 8132). Upon admission, students must open a file in that office to ensure completion of all certification requirements.

The Graduate School of Education offers seven joint master's degree/initial teacher certification programs (elementary education, English, English as a second language, foreign language, mathematics, science [physical or biological], social studies). These programs are designed for individuals who hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education. GSE also offers joint master's degree/endorsement programs for reading specialist, bilingual-bicultural education, learning disabilities teacher-consultant, and student personnel services. GSE recommendations for all initial teacher certification and most endorsement programs are in conjunction with the completion of the requirements for the Ed.M. degree. Nondegree endorsement programs are offered in bilingual-bicultural education, early childhood education, and English as a second language education. Prior to beginning or completing a joint master's degree/initial teacher certification program, students must have taken 66 general education credits at either the graduate or undergraduate level, including course work in eight of the following areas: mathematics, science, English or American literature, American history or American studies, music, non-Western studies, Western studies, philosophy, technology, foreign language (four terms), and psychology. All students are required to complete a college level math course. Before teacher certification can be recommended, students also must have completed a liberal arts major with a coherent 30-credit sequence of courses, 12 credits of which must be at the 300 or 400 level.
