          The Fast Track to Your Teaching Career

          Fast Track Teacher Certification

          With Edinboro University's Fast Track Teacher Certification program, you can become a professionally-certified teacher in just three semesters, which includes a summer semester that is fully online. Earn a teacher certification based on your undergraduate content area and be certified to teacher at the middle or secondary level.

          That means you can become a teacher in just one year of graduate-level courses. If you have a bachelor’s degree in one of the following content areas, you are most likely qualified for EU’s Fast Track Teacher Certification program*:

          • Art
          • Biology
          • Chemistry
          • English
          • History/Social Studies
          • Math
          • Music
          • Physics
          • Science
