This full-time intensive 12-month program offers individuals without an education background an opportunity to complete a Master of Arts in Education degree while simultaneously completing the requirements for teacher certification.
Our program is designed to aid the student in:
- building on a strong foundation in subject matter;
- developing a strong foundation in professional knowledge;
- defining one's philosophy of teaching and of classroom management;
- learning to apply research to improve teaching practice; and
- understanding current realities in schools in the area.
Villanova now offers a part-time Master of Arts in Education plus Teacher Certification Program. This program permits prospective teachers to complete their graduate certification requirements (36 credits in total) in two years. Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis.
The Masters of Arts in Education plus Certification program requires thirty-six credits which includes courses, workshops, field experiences including observations in the schools, and student teaching. The track is normally completed in two semesters and two summer sessions (12 months) and exists for secondary teacher certification only.
Applicants should have an undergraduate major in an academic subject area (English, History, etc.). Some candidates may need additional coursework to meet the requirements of this program. Additional program details can be found by clicking the links below:
