Welcome to the Department of Education
Do you want to be part of the most provocative profession in America? Are you interested in being paid to think about learning? Do you want to be remembered as someone who changed others' lives? Becoming a teacher in the twenty-first century is not for the timid, but it is a place for people who will commit seriously to the intellectual, social, ethical, and political issues that comprise American schooling. Forget the rhetoric you've heard, and come join us at UNH - learn with people whose careers are invested in the grand idea of universal, public Education.
The Education Department offers three programs of graduate study in education: Teacher Certification for those seeking initial teacher certification, Professional Education for currently certified teachers seeking professional advancement, and a Sixth Year Certificate in Instructional Technology and Digital Media Literacy. These programs represent the University’s commitment to preparing future educators for meaningful roles in teaching the youth of the 21st century.
The Education Program at the University of New Haven is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), www.ncate.org. This accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs at West Haven and New London campuses. However, the accreditation does not include individual education courses that the institution offers to P-12 educators for professional development, relicensure, or other purposes.
