Graduate Teacher Certification Programs
After the student has been admitted, requirements for teacher certification at the graduate level will be individually prescribed through a transcript evaluation by an advisor in the School of Education and Professional Studies and departmental subject advisor when applicable. Certification requirements include not only course work (such as completion of undergraduate requirements for appropriate subject majors, professional education, and student teaching) but also the satisfactory completion of all requirements for admission to the Professional Program of the School of Education and Professional Studies.
Students are advised to contact their advisors as soon as possible after they are admitted to graduate study. For current information concerning Connecticut and University requirements for certification, they may consult the office of the dean, School of Education and Professional Studies. Students completing planned programs of teacher certification programs do not participate in graduation ceremonies.
