If you already hold a baccalaureate degree, UMM provides certification-only programs to prepare you for a teaching career at either the elementary or secondary levels.
UMM offers professional coursework leading to Elementary Certification (K-8), Secondary Certification (7-12), in the fields of Art, English, History, Life or Physical Science, or Mathematics, as well as certification in Special Education (K-12). It is possible to complete the certification program within three semesters if all content requirements are fulfilled. Maine has specific content requirements for Elementary Education Certification, but requirements for Secondary Certification in Maine vary according to the content area. Students with foreign educational credentials must submit transcripts for analysis to a credentialing agency.
Our individualized advising will assist you in determining which courses will best prepare you to meet the State of Maine certification requirements, as well as give you an excellent start in classroom teaching.
