Teaching Degrees in Maryland

All teaching schools with programs approved to fulfill Maryland teacher education requirements are four-year colleges or universities. A Maryland teacher license can only be granted to a graduate of an accredited baccalaureate program. Teaching schools in Maryland offer bachelor’s-level programs that lead directly to initial certification, but non-education majors can also earn a Maryland teaching license if they enroll in state-approved teacher education programs at the post-baccalaureate level, such as a master’s degree program or a Maryland Approved Alternative Preparation Program (MAAPP). A sampling of teaching schools in Maryland includes the following four institutions:

Notre Dame of Maryland University

The Bachelor of Arts in Education available through Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) can lead to professional certification in a number of content-specific areas, including art, elementary education, or computer science. Students that elect to remain for a fifth year can enroll directly in a master’s-level program in their specialty. NDMU’s School of Education partners with 18 elementary and high schools in the counties of Anne Arundel, Harford, and Baltimore as well as Baltimore City to provide student teaching assignments.

University of Maryland

Undergraduate teaching programs available through University of Maryland’s College of Education prepare students for state certification in the areas of elementary education, secondary education, early childhood, and special education. The College of Education also offers undergraduate minors, like human development or leadership studies, that can start the process towards certification in a specialization. The University of Maryland’s education college is also home to the Center for Chinese Language Teacher Certification and Development, founded at the school in 2009.

Loyola University Maryland

Students earning their Maryland teacher certification in elementary education are the primary focus of the undergraduate education program at Loyola University Maryland’s School of Education. The school’s lone bachelor’s degree program is in elementary education, although a combined bachelor’s and master’s five-year program leads to certification in secondary education. Loyola’s Master of Art in Teaching (MAT) program can also lead to certification in elementary education, English, earth science, or physics.

Johns Hopkins University

The graduate program at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Education was ranked sixth overall in the U.S. in the 2013 rankings released by U.S. News & World Report. Every year, the School of Education confers more than 500 graduate education degrees to Johns Hopkins University students. Graduate programs at Johns Hopkins include the special education teacher immersion training (SET-IT) program, which leads to a master’s degree in special education while offering employment in the Montgomery County public school system.
