Learn the Skills You Need to Teach under the Common Core State Standards: Today’s teachers are facing higher expectations on their performance and on their ability to meet the needs of the students they serve. NCU offers Common Core-focused Post-Baccalaureate Certificates in Education to help prepare you to teach within the Common Core State Standards while simultaneously helping students meet their learning outcomes.

Common Core Certificates

K-12 education in the United States continues to evolve to keep pace with the accelerated demands of an international economy. The Common Core State Standards represent a new challenge for teachers, and will ultimately change how teachers teach, shape what students need to learn, and influence how teachers are evaluated. To address this challenge, NCU developed two short and cost-effective post-baccalaureate certificate programs designed to strengthen your skillset in delivering math and language arts instruction in the Common Core with much better results.

Certificate Options

  • Mathematics Excellence in the Common Core
  • English Language Arts Excellence in the Common Core

Contact NCU today to find out how you can fit one of these certificates—or both—into your schedule and get started towards becoming an expert in teaching math and language arts in the Common Core.
