Education Department

Welcome to the Education Department at Saint Anselm College. The Teacher Education Programs (TEP) are designed to integrate liberal arts general education, specialized content major, and teacher education requirements.

Our programs emphasize a strong theoretical base and practical experience. Its strengths lie in the use of reflective practice, multiple opportunities for teaching in diverse classrooms, and extensive content knowledge. In doing so, it is not unusual that most of the student's electives must be utilized. For this reason early career decision and careful program planning are essential. Refer to the catalogue for specific course descriptions and plans of study.

New Hampshire has reciprocity agreements with approximately 40 other states, certification eligibility is extended to a considerably larger geographical area. It is an individual's responsibility to contact the state of choice in order to obtain licensing requirements and guidelines in other states. It is advised that the state of interest be contacted to confirm specific requirements that may differ from those within New Hampshire (e.g. grade point averages, professional experience, testing requirements, and passing thresholds, etc.).
