Teaching Writing and Literacy Certificate

No matter what you are teaching, Penn State’s Specialist Certificate: Teaching Writing and Literacy is for you! This 15-credit program is similar to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s range of educational endorsements. The Writing Specialist Certificate is designed to afford educators deep study in all aspects of teaching literacy. It provides the teacher with real-world skills for implementing the writing requirements of the PA Core Standards.

Considering a Masters Degree Program?
The core courses of Penn State Harrisburg’s 30-credit Master of Education in Teaching and Curriculum are delivered online.  Why not take a course with an “EDUC” prefix as they may transfer in to the program as electives?
