Accelerated Online Masters (MS) in Middle School Education (Grade 4-8 Certification)
A growing number of graduate students develop an interest in the teaching profession after they receive a bachelor’s degree in a different field. Gywnedd-Mercy College offers a unique program in which these students can work toward their Master of Science in Education as well as achieve certification in PreK-Grade 4 (Early Childhood) Education. After completing the certification portion of the program, including student teaching, students continue their coursework to complete a Masters of Science Degree in Education.
Note: Candidates must emerge from post-baccalaureate programs with the same mastery of content, pedagogy and human development in their masters’ degree and certificate area that their peers in pre-baccalaureate teacher preparation programs achieve.
