Teacher Education - Professional Education Courses for Maryland Certification (Professional Training)

(For persons who already have a Bachelor’s Degree)

Application Code 137

For curriculum information, contact the Social Sciences and Teacher Education Division–Room ST-149–443-518-1620.

This course of study is designed for persons who already have a bachelor’s degree and wish to become a Certified Teacher in Maryland. Students may enroll in certification courses, but they should also have their college transcripts evaluated by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) Division of Certification. Students must contact MSDE by logging on to www.marylandpublicschools.org or by calling the MSDE Certification Assistance Line at 410-767-0412 to learn about the transcript evaluation process. The courses listed below will satisfy most if not all of the coursework requirements on the MSDE Evaluation Form for Certification. Upon receipt of the transcript evaluation, students may use the following charts to determine what courses Howard Community College offers that meet the MSDE Professional Education course requirements. Please note: 1) All certification areas require passing scores on one of the basic skills tests,* 2) most certification areas require Maryland passing scores on the Praxis II: Subject Assessments, 3) all certification areas require documented teaching experience before an initial certificate is awarded; Howard Community College does not provide this documented teaching experience or offer a student teaching course, and 4) additional Professional Education courses may be required in some certification areas. These options do not provide a complete certification program or lead to a credential from HCC.
