  • Adult Education (ADED) 590 - Practicum in Adult Education or Academic Discipline 589 - Internship in
    Community College Teaching (3 hrs) Prerequisite: EDFN 612 or permission of instructor. Any departmental
    internship course (3 hrs) may be used to fulfill this certificate requirement.
  • *18 Credit Hours in the specific discipline you wish to teach at the community college level
    *Online availability is dependent upon the discipline you wish to teach. If you are seeking a pathway to completion
    that is 100% online, we recommend tying this program in with your master’s degree when possible. See below
    for additional information:
    • Current master’s degree students may count up to 12 credit hours of this certificate toward their master’s
      program, so if you are pursuing an online master’s degree, you can earn two credentials at the same time
      completely at a distance. This reduces the overall number of credit hours required.
    • Students who are pursuing the certificate as a post-grad program may count up to 12 credit hours of their
      master’s degree toward the graduate certificate if requirements (timeframe and curriculum) are met, and
      courses are approved by the advisor.
