Education Degrees


Our teacher certification programs are designed to give you a competitive edge.

Cedar Crest College is one of the first college in the Lehigh Valley to provide state certification in all of the three newly defined levels of education: Early Childhood (PreK-4), Middle Level (4-8) and Secondary Education (7-12). We also offer enhanced coursework, add-on certificates, and a variety of pre-teaching and student-teaching experiences to prepare you for the classrooms of the future.

All of our faculty members are experienced teachers who have worked in public and/or private schools, from preK through secondary school. Their dedication to excellence has enabled Cedar Crest to form strong partnerships with local school districts, providing our students with superior student teaching and job placement opportunities.

In the first year after graduation, most alumnae accept employment in private, public, and charter schools as full-time contracted teachers, as long-term or daily substitutes, or as para-professionals. Other graduates go on to pursue a Master of Education degree or Reading Specialist certificate, both of which are also available at the College.
