Program Description:

Sacred Heart University offers a program of study leading to Connecticut teacher certification in Elementary education (grades 1 - 6), as well as Secondary education (grades 7-12) in biology, chemistry, English, general science, history and social studies, math and Spanish. Credits completed toward teacher certification may be applied to the Master of Arts in Teaching degree (MAT). The 33-credit MAT is also available to those who are already certified teachers. Teacher Certification candidates gain valuable experience in our tuition-paid, full-time Internship program in which we partner with numerous school districts in the local area. Interns are placed in a school system for one year to serve as instructional assistants and to complete the student teaching requirement, while pursuing their graduate studies in evening classes.

Accreditation:

Fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges (NEASC), the Connecticut State Department of Education, and NCATE.
