Certificate -- This is an "added" certificate, meaning only current graduate students at Binghamton University are eligible. There are two certificates available that focus on teaching in a college/university setting, or teaching in a community college setting.
Binghamton University's Graduate School was one of the first in the U.S. to offer a university-wide Certificate of Completion in College/University Teaching, preparing graduate students for higher education teaching. The program, approved by the Graduate Council in 1996, may be integrated into academic studies at any point in a current degree-seeking graduate student's academic career at Binghamton University. The certificate programs provide you a chance to work closely with faculty. Under their close guidance you can organize your teaching credentials and portfolio, articulate your teaching philosophy, and demonstrate your teaching experiences and abilities when pursuing teaching opportunities. You will work alongside faculty within your chosen discipline, as a teaching assistant or in other capacities. Hands-on teaching experience is then gained as the faculty set up opportunities for you to lead discussions or give guest lectures. If you are considering a future in academia within your field, consider Binghamton’s Certificates of Completion in Teaching. And we welcome you to learn more about the programs at our Graduate School website.
