Rutgers undergraduates do preliminary coursework and field placements as assigned during the sophomore and junior years, are admitted to the English education (K-12) from Rutgers University during the spring semester of the junior year, and enter the professional education sequence in the summer between junior and senior years. Students then qualify to have their bachelor’s degree awarded by the undergraduate liberal arts college. The English Education (K-12) program is offered at Rutgers University.
Students continue with the professional sequence the summer after graduation. They return in the fall to complete a student-teaching internship with related coursework and continue with full-time graduate study, including a field-based research project, in the spring. The Ed.M. degree is conferred upon the completion of all five-year program requirements.
After the master’s degree is awarded, the GSE will make a recommendation to the New Jersey State Department of Education on behalf of the student to receive a Certificate of Eligibiligy with Advanced Standing (CEAS) as a teacher.Vision StatementWe aspire to bring distinction to Rutgers by conducting research and improving practice in relation to three pressing issues in education: (i) meeting the needs of diverse learners, (ii) using emerging digital pedagogical tools effectively, and (iii) addressing the equity and adequacy of financial, human, and social resources for PK-12 and higher education.
