Innovative Education Program for Prospective PK-12 Educators
At the Tulane School of Professional Advancement, we offer a Teacher Preparation and Certification Program (TPCP) that combines industry-relevant coursework and focused field experience. We educate beginning teachers and support experienced teachers.
A strong commitment to learning is a necessary foundation for self-evaluation and continuous professional learning, two hallmarks of education leaders. Tulane SoPA candidates are expected to be catalysts for social change and innovative leadership, teaching and improving the lives of PK-12 students, both in and out of the classroom.
Our Mission: To develop innovative, caring, and knowledgeable educators who use an interdisciplinary approach to meet the needs of diverse learners
Our Vision: An innovative and caring educator in every classroom
Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification
We offer post-baccalaureate certificates and teacher certifications in Early Childhood (pre-kindergarten-3rd grade) and Secondary Education (6th-12th grade). We also offer four courses that collectively earn an English as Second Language (ESL) endorsement if you are currently a certified teacher in the state of Louisiana.
