Teacher Education (B.A. & Master's)

UNH Teacher Education Program
Accelerated Master’s Program for Qualified Students

The UNH Teacher Education program is for current or prospective undergraduate students who are interested in becoming a teacher. Diligent students have the ability to earn both their bachelor's and master's degrees in as little as five years* through the Accelerated Master's Program.

This program is an integrated undergraduate-graduate program culminating in a fifth year, year-long internship. Before the internship, students earn a bachelor's degree in one of our current undergraduate degree programs.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for teachers is expected to have growth of about 6% through 2024. Opportunities are the greatest in the fields of mathematics, science, and bilingual education in both urban and rural school districts.

UNH Manchester, in cooperation with the UNH campus in Durham, offers state-approved education programs and is authorized to prepare students for certification in the areas of elementary and secondary education. UNH Manchester’s urban location provides students with a rich learning environment with opportunities to prepare for teaching careers in higher demand.

Certification under secondary education includes English, English as a second language, and social studies.

Students who have already earned a bachelor degree outside the field of education are encouraged to apply to the UNH Graduate School.


*Please note that not all education courses may be offered at the Manchester campus. Depending upon course availability, students may need to travel to Durham to complete a portion of their master’s degree. Please contact the Graduate School for more information.
