Education

The School of Education at Georgian Court University offers several undergraduate teacher education programs, each leading to a certificate of eligibility with advanced standing and endorsement as a Teacher of Students with Disabilities.

You study a content or primary area—such as math, English, or history—along with taking courses in education. Essentially, you double-major in the primary area and education, yet graduate with a degree in the primary major with the designation of being in a teacher certification program.

As part of the program, you will complete one of the following options:

  • Early Childhood Education (P–3)
    Available majors: biology, chemistry, English, history, interdisciplinary studies, mathematics, natural sciences, psychology, Spanish, or visual art
  • Elementary Education (K–6)
    Available majors: biology, chemistry, English, history, interdisciplinary studies, mathematics, natural sciences, psychology, Spanish, or visual art
  • Specific Subject Education
    Available majors: biology, business administration, chemistry, English, history, mathematics, Spanish, or visual art
  • English as a Second Language
    Available majors: biology, chemistry, English, history, interdisciplinary studies, mathematics, natural sciences, psychology, Spanish, or visual art

Each option includes eligibility for the Teacher of Students with Disabilities endorsement.

At the end of the program, GCU facilitates the certification application process. You will submit the application through the School of Education to the New Jersey Department of Education.

Program

To be eligible for a Certificate of Eligibility with Advanced Standing and the Teacher of Students with Disabilities endorsement, you must successfully complete all program requirements (see current catalog).
