From the Program Coordinators, Professors Daniel Stuckart and Roger Peach
Welcome to the Undergraduate Education program for seventh grade through twelfth grade. We are committed to preparing competent, qualified, ethical, and reflective practitioners for service in diverse communities who believe in promoting care, justice, and equity in urban settings.
Our program is divided into two components, the minor in education and teacher certification. The minor in Education is open to all students with about 60 credits. Upon completion of the minor, if you have decided to become a grade seven through twelve teacher and your overall GPA is a minimum 3.0, you will then complete an additional four (five for Art) courses. Completion of the minor and then the teacher education sequence will provide you with an initial teacher certification, allowing you to begin teaching in your subject area.
One of our major program goals is to support your development of leadership skills, knowledge and dispositions so you are prepared to make a critical different in the lives of students.
Looking ahead to graduate school? A Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Preparation Intensive is being offered by the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. The course will intensively review math content (algebra, geometry), reading comprehension (vocabulary, synonyms) and essay writing to prepare for the three sections of the GRE General Test: Quantitative Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. The course is in a hybrid format including both live/online Zoom sessions, taught by an expert GRE prep Lehman College professor, and study on Blackboard. The course runs during Summer 2021 in Session A (June 7- July 1) on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-7:30 p.m.
