PETER SAMMARTINO SCHOOL OF EDUCATION
Welcome to the Peter Sammartino School of Education.
We take pride in preparing tomorrow’s teachers and educational leaders. Our QUEST Teacher Preparation Program — a five-year combined degree program leading to a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) — has received widespread recognition for its unique design.
You’ll pursue professional studies for teacher preparation leading to state teacher licensure while earning a bachelor’s degree in a liberal arts or science major and a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree. You can choose to be certified to teach at the early childhood, elementary, or secondary school level, or in English as a Second Language — and even have the option to earn additional certifications.
Our School also prepares current and aspiring teaching professionals for the next level of their careers:
- A post-baccalaureate teacher certification program for college graduates interested in transitioning to a teaching career
- An educational leadership program focused on preparing future school administrators and leaders
- Specialized certification programs for teachers pursuing professional opportunities in literacy, special education, ESL and instructional technology
Our School is nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
