Licensure and Certification
Bloomsburg University is approved to offer Education programs that lead to certification in Pennsylvania. While we regularly monitor licensure and certification laws in each state, state requirements are subject to change without notice. If you're interested in certification outside of Pennsylvania, we encourage you to contact the appropriate state licensing agency to seek guidance and verify requirements before beginning a program and during your program of study. Please visit our state authorization page and www2.ed.gov for more information. If you're planning to teach in New Jersey, please note you may be required to complete the edTPA, a performance based assessment. It's strongly recommended you contact the school districts of interest and the New Jersey Department of Education for details specific to New Jersey.
