RIC offering new program for middle school teachers

A shortage of middle-grade teachers in Rhode Island, has prompted Rhode Island College's Feinstein School of Education and Human Development to begin a Certificate of Graduate Studies in Middle-Level Education, which meets the Rhode Island Department of Education's Middle Grades Certification.

To enroll in this program, students must have earned a bachelor's degree along with either a Secondary Teaching Certificate or an Elementary Teaching Certificate, with at least 21 hours of designated coursework and successful completion of the Middle Grades Praxis Content Test.
