ACADEMIC OPPORTUNITIES

Teacher Certification

Students majoring in biology, chemistry, English, French, history, Latin, mathematics, physics, political science, Spanish and a number of other fields that are typically taught in secondary school, may get certified to teach in public secondary high schools in Pennsylvania. By reciprocal arrangement, the Pennsylvania certificate is accepted by most other states as well. A student who wishes to teach should consult her dean, the Education Program adviser and the chair of her major department early in her college career so that she may make appropriate curricular plans. Students may also choose to get certified to teach after they graduate through the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program. For further information, see the Education Program.
