Become a Teacher!
Our Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification (PBTC) programs are designed for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree and are seeking New Hampshire Teaching Certification.
The PBTC programs offers teacher certifications with concentrations in the critical shortage area for teachers in the State of New Hampshire. 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.
Our Non-Traditional, Distance-based Model
Unlike traditional teacher prep programs, many of which have a full time student teaching component, our programs allow you to work full-time in an educational setting in a role such as a paraprofessional or teaching assistant.
Availability by State
Our programs leading to teacher certification or licensure are available to new students in New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont. See Availability in Your State for full details.
We offer Initial and Additional Teacher Certifications, as well as Advanced Endorsements for Special Education Teachers.
