Combined Master's and Teacher Certification Programs at the University of Pennsylvania, Graduate School of Education (GSE)
Bryn Mawr and Haverford students interested in obtaining both the M.S.Ed. degree as well as faculty approval for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania teaching certificate may choose to submatriculate as undergraduates into the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education’s 10-month, urban-focused Master’s Program in Elementary or Secondary Education. Students usually submatriculate at the beginning of their junior year.
Bryn Mawr and Haverford students who submatriculate may take up to two graduate-level education courses at Penn while they are undergraduates (usually during their junior or senior years) that will double count toward both their undergraduate and graduate degrees. To submatriculate into the program, students must have a GPA of a 3.0 or above and a combined GRE score of at least 1000 and must complete an application for admission.
More information about the secondary education and elementary education master’s programs are available on the GSE website: www.gse.upenn.edu/degrees_programs.
