Villanova University and the Department of Education and Counseling offer a program in teacher education which can be taken either post-baccalaureate or post-Master's Degree. The Teacher Leadership Certificate (TLC) is designed for professionals who possess a bachelor's degree, or M.Ed., M.A.T, M.A. or M.S. degrees in education or other fields.
