Teacher Certification Program (TCP)

Program Highlights

  • Small class sizes
  • Affordable
  • Flexible with late afternoon and evening courses
  • Go at your own pace


The Teacher Certification Program is designed to allow individuals with a baccalaureate degree to obtain state certification to be eligible for a classroom teaching position.

After completing the TCP program, students interested in obtaining a master's degree can then move seamlessly forward in UNE's Master of Science in Education program with a concentration in Teaching Methodology.

Through course work designed to satisfy department and state requirements, certification in areas of elementary education (K-8), secondary education (7-12), and art education (K-12) may be obtained. Courses provide foundational and pedagogical knowledge, coupled with the requirement to have field experiences in  public school classrooms throughout the program.
