Educator Preparation

Programs

Undergraduate Educator Preparation programs at KSC focus on an understanding of the teaching profession, the diversity of learners, and effective teaching practices, with supervised pre-professional experiences. These programs lead to a recommendation for endorsement for NH certification to the New Hampshire Department of Education.

Keene State College also offers post-baccalaureate, master’s and post-master’s programs allowing you to become a teacher, advanced special educator, or principal. These programs lead to certification or advanced degrees in Education.
