Degree Requirements - QUEST Program


Students must complete 120 credits (FOR STUDENTS ENTERING FALL 2015)  for a B.A. or B.S. in a liberal arts or science major appropriate for the area of teacher certification. This includes at least 30 credits in education courses required for elementary or secondary certification -- of which a maximum of 15 credits may be applied as dual undergraduate and graduate credit to both the B.A./B.S. and M.A.T. degrees  -- plus 15 credits in graduate-level educational methodology courses.

Students who complete the required 120 credits for the BA/BS and the required education courses and pass the PRAXIS in their area of certification become eligible to take their 15-week Apprenticeship Teaching (eight credits). After completing their apprenticeships, students become eligible for their NJ State Teaching Certificate. The student becomes eligible for the M.A.T. degree upon completion of an additional 13 graduate credits.

NOTE: Both campuses currently offer the Dual Certification (Elementary and Special Education) program for all Elementary majors.

The Dual Certification program requires 6 more total credits than the Elementary Certification program.

For details on this program, the students should meet with the Director of the QUEST Program.
