Penn State University offers educator preparation programs that lead to teacher certification in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) approves the initial application of all certification programs, whether at the undergraduate or post baccalaurate level. PDE also periodically reviews these programs to ensure that all certificate requirements continually are being met. The College is beginning a major review cycle in 2020 that will culminate in 2022.
