This is a program of study for candidates who have a bachelor’s degree in the subject area they plan to teach but who do not meet the New York State requirements for initial certification in adolescence education. Teaching areas open to students at Utica College are English, mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, and the social studies (degrees in economics, history, government, politics, or an equivalent degree to the sociology/ anthropology degree awarded by Utica College). Students who wish to add certification to teach grades 5–6 may do so by taking additional courses.
