When the Teacher becomes the Student…

You’ve always been out front, leading a classroom, showing your students the way to their goals. Or perhaps you’re not yet in a classroom, but want to be. You have a degree in your field and want to share that knowledge with others as a certified teacher.

At Point Park, we welcome you to become a student again and we'll help you emerge as an expert, leader, and energized and committed educator.

Our graduate education programs are for teachers who want to become principals, curriculum specialists and leaders in their schools -- and for those who are seeking teaching certification for the first time. You can get certified in a new area or become an “expert” teacher in your field.

With Saturday and evening classes, the graduate education programs are tailored to fit the schedule of both the classroom teacher and the working professional.
