Business, Computer & Information Technology Teacher Certification
Post-Baccalaureate

The Department of Education at Robert Morris University offers a non-degree post-baccalaureate program for individuals who have completed an undergraduate bachelors degree program from an accredited higher education institution and now wish to become a secondary business education (business, computer, and information technology) teacher.  It can be easily combined with either a Master of Science (M.S.) in Instructional Leadership or a Master of Science (M.S.) in Business Education by taking three additional classes.

Upon successful completion of this non-degree certification program, the teacher candidate applies to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) for K-12 teacher certification in Business, Computer and Information Technology.

With the addition of just two more courses to this program, students can earn a master's degree, a Master of Science (M.S.) in either Instructional Leadership or in Business Education.

All requirements must be satisfied for the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to grant you a Pennsylvania Instructional I Teaching Certificate. The steps are outlined in the post-baccalaureate Teacher Education Progress Process (TEPP).
