Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Intern Program
Susquehanna University has been selected by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to provide the Teacher Intern Program. This program invites holders of baccalaureate degrees to gain teaching certificates by completing professional education courses at an approved Pennsylvania college or university. Once accepted into the program, candidates may earn a salary and education credits while teaching under supervision.
The Teacher Intern Program has defined criteria for admission that assess the candidates’ potential for teaching through the examination of skill dimensions, academic preparation including an acceptable GPA, completion of qualifying work experience and an assessment of the candidates ability to function in a teaching situation.
Teacher Intern candidates must have a bachelor's degree from an approved university, and must satisfy academic major requirements as described under the department in the current Susquehanna University catalog.
Admission Policy: Candidates entering a Teacher Intern Certification Program must have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA in their baccalaureate degree. Candidates with a lower GPA for their baccalaureate degree can be conditionally accepted and demonstrate their competence by completing 12 semester hours of coursework with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Candidates must complete the Intern Program having earned at least a 3.0 GPA in order to gain PA certification.
