Granite State College: University System of New Hampshire

Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification


The Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification (PBTC) program at Granite State College is designed for students who have completed a bachelor's degree and are seeking New Hampshire Teaching Certification. The PBTC program offers teacher certification with concentrations in the critical shortage area for teachers in the State of NH.

We also offer additional certifications for already certified teachers. Those holding an initial teaching certification can earn additional or advanced certifications in as few as 18-29 credits.

The Educator Toolkit* allows our teacher candidates to leverage cutting-edge technology, communication and electronic resources. E-texts, web sources, educational applications and other productivity applications will be utilized in each class. Additional details will be provided during EDU 700 Introduction to Field Experience and Program Requirements.

*The Educator Toolkit and tablets can be covered by Financial Aid.
