Program Requirements

The Social Studies certification program requires students to take courses in various areas of the social and behavioral sciences, history, and education. All courses required for certification, including an intensive field experience, must be completed with a grade of C or better prior to student teaching. The program requirements are listed on the Courses page. Students can send their undergraduate transcripts to the Certification Officer, Joel Geary, at jdg24@psu.edu in order for the program adviser to determine which courses may have already been completed that would satisfy the requirements

Program Notes

A minimum grade of C is required in all courses for certification; however, a 3.0 grade-point average is required to be eligible for student teaching.
