1. The total number of credit hours at graduation may be greater for some students based on initial placement exams, transfer evaluations, individual curricular choices, and academic progress.
2. Certain courses fulfill multiple requirements. In consultation with advisors, students will be able to plan their curriculum more effectively.
3. Students must fulfill the necessary prerequisites for any given course or course sequence. See the Prerequisite and Co-requisite Policy in the University-wide Academic Policies section in this Bulletin.

Subject area content and professional education content are combined with general education content in order to provide the student with a general education, a field of specialization, and professional training. Moreover, the curriculum aims to combine these elements in such proportions as to give students the balanced perspective of the relation that business education bears to education as a whole.

Prior to enrolling in Student Teaching (Student Teaching in Sec Ed 4688), BCIT students must have completed (with a 3.0 cumulative average) the business education, career and technical education, and professional course sequence requirements as well as academic specialization.

Certification Programs

Cooperative Education

School personnel interested in supervising students in work-based settings in Pennsylvania must be certified in Cooperative Education. This certification covers a variety of work-based settings for secondary students, including capstone programs, diversified occupations programs, shadowing experiences, work experience programs, internships, and job shadowing. The skill and knowledge included in this certification program also has application to post-secondary and adult settings.

Persons wishing to become teachers of cooperative education must make application to the program and provide information about their education and experiential backgrounds. Based on the information provided, a program of studies, which includes an internship, is prepared. Persons who enter this program holding a valid teaching certificate will work toward earning an "add-on" certificate in Cooperative Education, while others will work toward a "stand-alone" certificate. Persons wishing to enroll in this program should contact an advisor.

Career and Technical Certification Program

This curriculum, which is offered in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, is designed to prepare persons to teach vocational industrial subjects on the secondary, post-secondary, and junior college levels in public and private schools. Career and Technical Teacher Education courses may be taken on three levels: Certification, Undergraduate, and Graduate. Persons who have at least two years of work experience beyond the learning period in a trade, technical, or other selected occupation may prepare for certification to teach occupational subjects or related classes in secondary schools in Pennsylvania.

Certification students must apply and be admitted to the Industrial (Career and Technical) Education Certification Program. All certification students must meet the requirements for admission to the University. In addition, candidates must satisfy the departmental requirements for work experience and must have passed the required Occupational Competency Test. Students must also pass Praxis I computer-based tests before receiving the Vocational Intern Teaching Certificate. This program prepares the student for industrial teacher certification in Pennsylvania and, in general, is acceptable in other states. Work taken toward the certification objective may be applied to the undergraduate degree program. The courses are offered on a part-time basis for those who are employed on an Intern credential. Completing 18 semester hours of approved coursework and passing the occupational competency examination will permit the issuance of a Vocational Instructional I Certificate, which is valid for seven years.

Upon receipt of the Vocational Instructional I certificate, the student must complete an additional 42 s.h. of college work, earning a minimum of 6 semester hours of credit per year until the requirements for permanent certification (60 s.h. and three years successful teaching) are satisfied.

Persons wishing to enroll in this program should contact an advisor.
