Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program

Open to Bryn Mawr and Haverford Graduates

Applications for 2016-2017 will be considered on a rolling basis until March 25, 2016. Those whose applications are accepted must enroll by May 1.

Graduates of Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges may complete requirements for Pennsylvania certification to teach at the secondary level by enrolling in the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program. In general, students are able to complete the program in one academic year if they have majored in the subject they plan to teach.

The program offers certification in the following areas:

  • Open to Bryn Mawr College or Haverford College graduates
  • GPA of a 3.0 or higher
  • Experience teaching, tutoring, or mentoring (at least 100 hours)
  • (Preferred) Have taken at least one education course as an undergraduate
  • U.S. citizenship, intent to become a U.S. citizen, or a resident alien (green card) visa. This requirement does not apply to world language teachers, however.
  • A bachelor’s or graduate degree in the subject area in which certification is sought OR the equivalent of a major in the certification area (e.g., a minor and additional coursework).
  • For social studies certification, a major in history, political science, economics, anthropology, or sociology is required, with coursework in all the other areas. Some interdisciplinary majors are acceptable.
