Secondary Mathematics Certification Option

College of the Sciences and Mathematics

Some students pursue certification for Pennsylvania teaching after they graduate with bachelor's degrees from West Chester or other universities. The Department of Mathematics normally accepts equivalent courses from colleges or universities accredited in the United States or their equivalent from schools in other countries. Students seeking post-baccalaureate certification should consult with the appropriate adviser in the Department of Mathematics to see which requirements they have already fulfilled in their undergraduate program and which they need to fulfill to get their teaching certificate. These students should also meet with their adviser to plan their academic progress and to ensure they are keeping up with requirements, and they should meet with an adviser in the Department of Professional and Secondary Education for information on required education courses. Students pursuing post-baccalaureate certification must meet all requirements for formal admission and student teaching.
