History/Social Studies 7-12, Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification

The Department of History 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. The program is designed specifically for students who have already obtained a bachelor's degree in history and want to teach at the secondary level. Candidates will complete courses in education and history methods, along with regular fieldwork in a variety of settings, to prepare for student teaching during the culminating semester of study. These programs can be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis.
