Instructional Certification Programs PK-12 or 7-12

Teacher Certification Programs

A student who wishes to obtain a Pennsylvania Instructional I Certificate in specialized PK-12 and 7-12 areas, but who does not wish to pursue the master’s degree program, or who already holds a master’s degree, can enroll in a post- baccalaureate, certification-only program. Determination of individual student requirements for certification will be made after all previous transcripts have been evaluated. A student seeking only certification is required to take at least fifty percent of the Education Core requirement credits at Marywood University. Eligibility for certification is determined by fulfillment of state requirements, including PRAXIS II testing (as required in each area of certification) taken upon completion of the program.
