The Education Division at Bloomfield College has relaunched the Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education Certificate Program (PB) as a graduate-level program. The reinvigorated program will kick off fall 2016.

“The refocusing of this certificate program will provide tremendous advantages to the students who enroll,” said Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, Vice President for Academic Affairs at the College.  “The program has always required students to perform at the Post-Baccalaureate level.  Now, that work will be recognized and classified as graduate-level work.”

The new Graduate Certificate in Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education is intended for individuals who already possess an undergraduate degree who wish to enter the teaching profession. Admission to the program for early childhood or elementary education will require said bachelor’s degree with 60 or more credits in the liberal arts or sciences, a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, and the requisite scores on the SAT or PRAXIS Core or GRE.

The program will be offered in the traditional format of 15 week terms. While credits remain unchanged, the course content descriptions were revised to incorporate graduate-level content.

The change will clarify that students are completing graduate level work to transition into the field of Education and enables students to be eligible for tuition discounts from the College and/or their school districts.

“The reduced tuition for graduate programs at Bloomfield College is an added bonus for our students,” added Dr. Grimes.

Courses will be deeply discounted at $1,860 per course, a 48% discount on the College’s undergraduate per course rate.
