High School Psychology Teacher Preparation Certificate

This post-baccalaureate certificate program is designed for high school psychology teachers. The American Psychological Association Council of Representatives has approved a new set of national guidelines that outlines models for preparing high school teachers to teach psychology effectively. APA advocates the development of a teaching credential endorsement for psychology in all states and recommends that pre-service teachers complete a second teaching field or endorsement for their teaching credential. Completing this certificate is a way high school teachers can establish competence for teaching psychology and helps ensure future competitiveness for individual high school teachers. This certificate is available only to holders of baccalaureate degrees earned at regionally accredited post-secondary institutions.

The certificate may be completed either on campus or online. Visit UMaine Machias Online to learn more about our online programs.
