Alternative Route to Teacher Certification

For post-baccalaureate students, 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.
