Students must apply to Teacher Education programs at Montclair State University. A 3.25 GPA in the major is required for BA/MAT and Subject Area (P-12). A 3.0 GPA is required for Elementary Single Certification (K-6). However, students who have not yet been accepted should follow their intended program’s curriculum guide so as to be sure that they take the proper General Education and English courses they will need if they are accepted. The printable curriculum guides below outline the programs of study for various English Teacher Education degree and certification programs.
For more complete information, please visit the Teacher Education Program website, and see especially the links under “Teacher Education Program Links,” including “Undergraduate Teacher Education Program Information” and “Graduate Teacher Education Program Information.” These will help you to understand both the processes and timetables for applying to Teacher Education Programs.
All advisers can advise for how English majors meet the requirements of a B.A. with a certificate in Teacher Education. However, for advising specific to Teacher Education courses, please see advisers in the Center of Pedagogy. After students attend an orientation, they are eligible to make appointments with the Secondary Education Adviser, Ian Bouie, or Elementary Education Program Adviser, Adrian Reagan. If you are interested in any of the dual degree (BA + MAT) programs, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
