B.A. Liberal Arts, Teacher Certification Program 

Teacher Assistant, DelSesto Middle School (Providence)

Kyisha had heard great things about SCE, and after attending an info session she knew it was the perfect place for her to fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher.

My experience with the staff is awesome. They have your best interest at heart when it comes to your education.

She has also been impressed by the classes, especially how they’ll be helpful in her professional career.

I sit and listen, and each time I learn something new whether it is from a classmate or the professor.

Our program delivers more than job-specific skills; it develops essential skills that are required in any profession, such as communication and problem solving. You will learn about the arts and sciences, but you’ll also leave our program a better speaker, thinker, and writer. Our graduates are employed in a number of professions. They work for banks, nonprofit agencies, and the public sector. All of them know the power of a PC degree.
