The Elementary/Secondary Education option is designed for students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree with teacher certification. The program is based on New Jersey teacher certification regulations and emulates the freshman and sophomore curriculum in four-year institutions, enabling student transfer to the four-year institutions.

Upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of child growth and development and relate it to learning opportunities in all domains of development.
  • Display an awareness and appreciation for diversity and multi-culturalism and the interrelationship between families, school and society.
  • Reflect on the multifaceted roles of a teacher and the principles and practices involved in teaching.
