Alvernia University offers five post-baccalaureate teaching certificate options for educators interested in enhancing their skills in a specific area. The course work in a certification program can be applied toward earning a Master of Education degree.

Five Options to Advance your Teaching Career:

 

Educators choose  Alvernia’s teaching certification programs for the three values:

  • Real-world connections that educators make between their prior experiences with children and new advanced knowledge and skills
  • Rigorous coursework that prepares our graduates to handle academic and social demands in diverse school contexts in their role of an educator or administrator
  • Responsiveness that begins with the first inquiry and lasts long beyond the program completion.


Take a full advantage of this opportunity to boost your skills and professional network to make a difference in young lives.
