Teacher Certification Program

We offer the option to obtain a teaching credential to outstanding students who already possess a BA in a social studies discipline. To be eligible for this option you must:
  • Have met our GPA requirements in your BA: 2.75 overall, 3.0 major;
  • Complete all requirements for a social studies education major at UD, including all the education and related coursework requirements. Please see the degree checklists for each program. We will have to review your transcripts to determine whether courses taken at another institution are equivalent to UD courses;
  • Pass the CORE (formerly Praxis I), complete the Learning Portfolio requirement, and submit an application for student teaching one year before the start of the student teaching semester.

All classes are taken through Continuing Education at the University of Delaware. Students usually complete prerequisite courses part-time and return to the University full time for the semester before and during student teaching.

Please contact the Program Coordinator for more information.
