The Community College Faculty Preparation (CCFP) certificate program combines critical components to prepare students to enter community college teaching. These components include: a master's degree in a teaching discipline, a three-hour graduate course in adult teaching/learning psychology, a three-hour seminar on topics relevant for teaching in the community college, and a three-hour teaching experience/internship at a community college. A certificate will be awarded to the students who successfully complete these requirements.
The CCFP program will empower certificate holders to be more competitive for community college faculty positions and to advance more rapidly in fulfilling the new faculty role. Faculty and administrators from several community colleges contributed to the development of the program and continue to be involved in various aspects of the program.
Participation in the CCFP program is optional to all graduate programs in the University. Graduate students may take courses as they approach the end of their master's degree or following completion of the master's degree. Application to the CCFP program is made in the Graduate School.
Please refer to the admission section of this catalog for Graduate School admission requirements.
