UNE's Post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program (TCP) is no longer accepting applications for admissions. All accepted and current students should contact the program directly..
If you hold a baccalaureate degree and wish to obtain State of Maine teacher certification, our program is designed to meet your needs. We offer small classes, flexible meeting times, and a self-directed pace.
After completing the TCP program, you may seek a classroom position in the field. You may also move seamlessly, if you choose, into our Master of Science in Education program with a concentration in Teaching Methodology.
Through coursework designed to satisfy State of Maine teacher certification requirements, you may receive certification in elementary education (K-8), secondary education (7-12), or art education (K-12). Our courses combine foundational and pedagogical knowledge with field experience in public schools throughout your participation in the program.
