At CCBC Online, our teacher education programs offer credentials for those interested in teaching early childhood, elementary, middle and high school students as well as those interested in childcare for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Our experienced faculty is ready to meet you wherever you are on your teacher education journey.

CCBC Online's teacher education online options will give you:
  • The convenience, flexibility and independence of online learning paired with valuable field experiences
  • Practical and rigorous online coursework that will prepare you for the students, classrooms and administration you will have after you graduate
  • The support and seamless transfer to Maryland four-year institutions
For certified teachers, CCBC Online is your source for recertification and professional development. Each fall, winter, spring and summer, CCBC Online offers courses in pedagogy, reading, assessment, methods, and special education.

Note: Each degree has a hands-on field experience. CCBC Online students are placed and supervised in a school or childcare setting for 45-60 hours during their last semester, making the degree blended. All other courses are offered fully online.

CCBC offers these teacher education degree and certification options.  All are in a blended format and can be completed in as little as two years.
