50 Hour Pre-Service Program

Monmouth University

Cost: $500

This course satisfies the New Jersey Department of Education requirement for those wishing to pursue certification through the Alternate Route process. Teacher candidates will have the opportunity to take part in a hybrid approach, spending time with an Adjunct Professor who is also an Administrator in a local school district, to learn the basics needed to start the journey to becoming a teacher.

Topics that will be covered during the live, in person portion of this class include how to look for a teaching job as an Alternate Route Candidate, the interview process, how to create a cover letter and resume for a teaching job, classroom management, lesson planning, and formative assessment strategies and techniques. Candidates will also be exposed to language and acronyms used in education, be given an introduction and overview on how to make modifications in both a Special Education and non-Special Education setting, in addition to beginning the discussion on the topic of how to differentiate for students who have a variety of social, emotional, and academic needs.

Clinical observation is a major component to the 50 Hour Pre-Service Course program. Students will be provided with video examples of lessons that they will critique and identify specific strategies and components, as well as have the opportunity to observe in a school setting. The final component will be the teacher candidates presenting a lesson to their Professor and peers. While candidates are encouraged to seek their own placement for these clinical hours, for those who are unable to do so, Monmouth University, through its partnerships with local school districts, will ensure that they assist in placing teacher candidates so that this requirement is met during the time frame of the course offering.

The Monmouth University 50 Hour Pre-Service Program has been structured so that teaching candidates are able to complete all requirements within a 10 Day Window. However, in order to ensure this occurs, candidates who sign up for these sessions must be willing to commit to the following “live” components:

  • Friday: 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Summer sessions 4p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m
  • 10 Hours total of clinical observation in an approved location during the following Monday-Friday
  • 5 additional “live” hours on the following Friday or Saturday (to be determined by session offered)

Anyone with questions regarding the Alternate Route Licensure Program at Monmouth University should direct them to Director Meredith Miller-Riddle at mamiller@monmouth.edu. Monmouth University looks forward to assisting you on your journey to becoming teachers!

The option for this degree can be found on this link: www.monmouth.edu/graduate/master-in-education/

You would NOT apply to the 350-hour program after the 50-hour course.
