Certificates & Certifications - College of Graduate Studies
The College of Graduate Studies offers certifications that allow educators at all levels to expand their expertise. Certification through the Pennsylvania Department of Education adds value to teachers’ primary area of study by adding an additional area of certification. If you already hold a bachelor’s degree, and are new to the field of education, you can obtain certification through one of our post-baccalaureate programs. You can also earn an administrative certificate to serve as a school or district administrator.
Please contact Sandra Rollison, assistant dean, at 610-647-4400, ext. 3215 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about any of our graduate programs.

In addition to formal certifications, the College of Graduate Studies offers several certificates, which are clusters of courses focused on certain topics. These certificates are a good way to update your resume and to highlight your skills in a given area.
