Completion of this program (and New Jersey State certification) prepares one to assume the responsibilities of special education teacher as well as an elementary education teacher in private or public schools. Elementary Education majors pursuing certification in Special Education must also have an academic major: English, Mathematics, Geoscience, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Spanish, or History.
Eligibility for teacher certification, as an Elementary School Teacher and Teacher of Students with Disabilities, by the New Jersey Department of Education is dependent upon completion of the curriculum requirements of a certification program, a passing score on a Praxis II examination, and whatever minimum CGPA has been put into effect by the State at the time a graduate’s application for certification arrives at the New Jersey Department of Education.
