Teacher Education Programs

Teacher Education in the English department offers students several paths to a career in teaching at elementary and secondary levels. Students must apply to the Teacher Education program.

For details on applications and pre-requisites, please consult the PDFs for a Teacher Education Program Overview, and requirements for Teacher Education (secondary) and Teacher Education (pre-K and elementary).

For a complete list of requirements for all versions of the English major, please see our Curriculum Guides.

We now offer our BA/MA joint degree program to students who are also seeking teacher certification at the undergraduate level, either P-12 or K-6. See our BA/MA page and Curriculum Guides for more information.

Post-Graduate Certification Programs

Except for the BA/MAT with teaching certification for students with disabilities, MAT programs at Montclair State no longer require content area coursework at the graduate level.  Please consult the Department of Teaching and Learning.
