If you are looking to teach students grades 7-12, we encourage you to explore our initial teacher certification program for secondary education. You can complete the program as either an intern or a traditional student, whichever works best with your busy lifestyle.
The University of Bridgeport offers a variety of Secondary Education degree program options to pursue:
- History and Social Studies
- Music (PK-12)
- Science (Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, General Science and Physics)
Each will prepare students who have a strong content knowledge in these areas for successful teaching careers.
As a Secondary Education candidate, you may take coursework at any of our three locations, Bridgeport or Waterbury; however a few courses may only be offered in Bridgeport. *If you already have a master’s degree, you can complete the program at a Sixth Year Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) level.
