Granite State College: University System of New Hampshire

The Post-Baccalaureate Experience


We know that earning a certification – alongside meeting the demands of your other responsibilities – is a huge challenge.

The School of Education considers it a privilege to have you as a candidate and takes measures to maximize your time while you’re enrolled in our programs.




Flexible Schedules

Each course that is required for your PBTC program is offered at GSC every term in at least one of the following course formats: one-on-one, online, face to face, hybrid, blended or intensive.

Building Your Career

There are several ways to plan your course and earn a dual certification; ask us about GSC's credit-efficient options for earning two certifications. It typically only takes about 2-5 courses to make this goal a reality!

For teachers that have achieved their Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification, GSC offers advanced special education endorsements, certifications, and certificates that can help educators take the next step in their teaching careers.

In addition, up to 24 credits will transfer into a master’s program at Keene State College or Plymouth State University. If you already hold a master’s degree, up to 16 credits of the Advanced Endorsements for Special Education teachers will transfer into the CAGS program at Plymouth State University. Please be advised that these credits should be used within a five year period. Please contact these institutions directly for further information.
