The College of Education and Human Services (CEHS) at Seton Hall University is committed to lifelong learning and professional development. We strive to provide alternate paths to careers in education by offering a variety of graduate programs in instructional design for teachers, educational media, and educational leadership to meet professional goals.
A Unique Approach
Through the Department of Graduate Studies and Special Programs, students who have completed a New Jersey state approved alternate route Provisional Teacher Training Program (PTTP) may acquire graduate credit for their alternate route experiences. Our program allows students who have completed the PTTP to acquire up to 15 graduate credits in the College of Education and Human Services at Seton Hall University. These credits are offered at 50% of the current graduate tuition rate and there are no fees associated with them.
Students may acquire credits as they complete each phase of the PTTP. Seton Hall will accept proof of completion of the following experiences toward the awarding of 15 graduate credits:
Phase IA/Phase IB (80 hrs) for
EDST 6407 Foundations of Education (3 credits)
Phase II (60 hrs) for
EDST 6408 Child and Adolescent Development (3 credits)
Phase III (60 hrs) for
EDST 6409 Life in the Classroom (3 credits)
Teaching with mentor (1 year) for
EDST 6460 Contemporary Assessment Practice (3 credits)
EDST 6229 Clinical Practice Seminar (3 credits)
Who Should Apply?
Students who have completed a New Jersey state approved alternate route Provisional Teacher Training Program (PTTP) and are interested in pursuing a Master's degree should apply to this program.
Students may use up to 15 of the credits awarded for the Provisional Teacher Training Program (PTTP) toward a 36-credit Master of Arts in Education. Seton Hall's Master's programs reflect current good practice in education and are guided by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards.
