Secondary Education Certification
The English/Secondary Education Certification is fully approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and leads to a teaching certificate valid in Pennsylvania for grades 7-12, and transferable to many other states. Students do a full semester of student teaching in their senior year. Placements for student teachers at area schools are arranged by Teacher Education Program faculty. English/Secondary Education majors at Misericordia have a 100% pass rate on the National Teacher Exam.
