The Career and Technical Education Program serves individuals working in the field of workforce development, including secondary and/or post-secondary career and technical education and technical training in industry. The following teacher education degrees/certifications are offered at the undergraduate level: business, computer and information technology education; industrial education; and marketing education.

Note: The degree and certification programs in Career and Technical Education (Business, Computer, and Information Technology Education (BCITE); Industrial Education; Marketing Education) are currently being revised to address new regulations from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE).  All students enrolling in any of these programs for the first time in 2008-2009 are strongly recommended to check with the Office of Student Services in the College of Education, or with the Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Technology in Education (CITE), to verify the requirements that pertain to their specific major.  In addition, students should check the Undergraduate Bulletin web site for the most current information about these programs (Academic Programs section), or the College of Education's web site at www.temple.edu/education.  It is also recommended that students meet with an advisor before enrolling in classes specific to these majors and leading to certification as a teacher.  This is to assure that a candidate’s intended program of study will be compatible with the new requirements.

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.

The Business, Computer, & Information Technology Education (BCITE) curriculum is designed to prepare students who expect to teach business subjects in K-12 and the 2-year college level in public and private schools. Subject area content (academic specialization) and professional education content are combined with general education content (university curriculum) 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 (Education 4788: Student Teaching in Secondary Education/Career & Technical Education ), BCITE students must have completed (with a 3.0 cumulative grade point average) the general education, professional education and academic specialization course sequence requirements.

Certification Programs

 

Cooperative Education

Dr. Chester Wichowski, Program Advisor

Ritter Hall 340
215-204-6249

chet.w@temple.edu

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 apply 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 & Technical Certification Program

Ms. Nancy Johnston, Certification Advisor

Ritter Hall 346
215-204-8376

This curriculum, which is offered in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, is designed to prepare persons to teach career and technical education (industrial) subjects on the secondary, post-secondary, and 2-year 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 six 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.
