MA Teacher Certification: Elementary & Secondary

The Farrington College of Education & Human Development’s graduate program leads to certification in Elementary Education (grades 1-6), Secondary Education (grades 7-12; Biology, Chemistry, English, General Science, Mathematics, Social Studies/History and World Languages), or Music (grades PK-12).

Through the program, you will gain the most up-to-date teaching methods from instructors with real-world, public-school experience. You will apply your knowledge in elementary and secondary school environments through class based practicum or the optional school based experience.

Sacred Heart annually recommends about 300 students to the State Department of Education for teaching certification.

Candidates who complete this 42 credit program, including their student teaching placement, will earn a Master of Arts in Teaching.

This year-long tuition-paid, full-time experience allows you to gain valuable skills while you work in a school environment, build professional relationships and apply your practice to course instruction.

The Master of Arts in Teaching with Initial Teacher Certification is offered at both the Fairfield campus and the Griswold location.
