Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Secondary Education

Program Details

University of Hawaii offers a Post-Bachelor Certificate in Secondary Education for students who are interested in becoming teachers in secondary education institutions for students from Grade 7 to Grade 12. Students will study ways to plan, design, and deliver educational development opportunities that support secondary school students by providing them with opportunities to grow through education that best supports students’ needs. In addition, students in the program may also learn how to measure and assess the impact of changed practices on student achievement, and may also develop and practice collaboration, facilitation, coaching, and mentoring skills.

The program consists of classroom courses that emphasize real-world education through examination of cases and education that will be applicable on the job. Those classes include Introduction to Teaching, Education in American Society, and Psychological Foundations.

Upon completion of the program, students should be recognized through their educational and professional qualifications for the necessary skills in teaching in secondary educational organizations. These qualifications include the ability to treat students equitably, recognizing the individual differences that distinguish one student from another and adjusting their practice based on observation and knowledge of their students’ interests, abilities, skills, knowledge, family circumstances, and peer relationships.
