Bachelor of Arts in Education
The current Bachelor of Arts program in Education provides the necessary training for students interested in teaching at the PreK-4 and Special Education (K-8) levels and Middle School (4-8) levels.
All Education programs are fully approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE). Graduates are recommended by the University Certification Officer after meeting all requirements for the Instructional I Certificate as mandated by PDE. Arcadia University makes every effort to help students prepare to meet certification requirements in other states. Reciprocity among many states currently exists allowing out of state students receiving certification in Pennsylvania to apply to their respective state departments of education for full certification status.
