Inside Psychology Teacher Education

Many U.S. schools offer a psychology bachelor's degree with teacher certification as part of the curriculum. Coursework in psychology may include psychological statistics, psychometrics, developmental psychology and social psychology, along with educational courses in classroom management, motivating students and learning evaluations. Student teaching experiences are often part of the curriculum as well.

Students may also earn a Master of Education with teacher certification to teach middle or high school psychology, but an undergraduate major in psychology may be required. Individuals wishing to teach psychology at the collegiate level must earn at least a master's degree in psychology, which may qualify them to teach at community colleges.
