Education, Teaching Elementary School (TES)/Teaching Secondary Content (TSC) Graduate Certificates


The College of Education provides two options for individuals with previously earned bachelor’s degree to earn a teaching certification: Certificate for Teaching Elementary School (TES) and Certificate for Teaching Secondary Content (TSC). The TES Option prepares individuals to qualify for a Wyoming teaching certificate in grades K-6. The TSC Option prepares individuals to qualify for a Wyoming teaching certificate in the middle and high school grades (6-12). Twelve hours of graduate-level coursework in either option can be applied to a subsequent UW master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

Overall Course Offerings: It is noted that the graduate certificate program can be a distance program; however, that does not preclude synchronous meetings or some scheduled on-campus intensive weekends (e.g., attending two Saturdays in the fall as part of the methods classes).  Courses are not guaranteed to be asynchronous, meaning that students may have to sign in to Zoom at specific times to attend. 

 

Standard Course Sequence


Starting June, 2021 the standard sequence is a three-semester long slate of required classes, beginning in the summer, and continuing through the subsequent fall and spring semesters.
