Post-Bacc Students

def.: Students who

  • have earned a bachelor's degree and
  • are seeking Pennsylvania Level I teacher certification

Messiah University offers programs leading to Pennsylvania teacher certification through our graduate program in education.

In addition to this list of undergraduate teacher certification programs, post-baccalaureate students can also pursue PA teaching certification in French and German.

If you already have earned a Bachelor’s Degree through an accredited college or university, you will not need to complete another degree to pursue teacher certification at Messiah University. As a “post-baccalaureate" certification student, you will complete courses that are necessary to meet Pennsylvania certification requirements. Upon successful completion of all required courses, field experiences, and Teacher Education Program requirements, Messiah University will recommend you to the Pennsylvania Department of Education in Harrisburg for certification.
