Degree Overview

You can complete the courses required by the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) for a provisional teaching certificate at the University of West Alabama. The Alabama State Approved Provisional Certificate in a Teaching Field (PCTF) provides educators with the coursework required to earn a Class B certificate. It allows students to choose from an approved list of courses and approach the program with just 12 credit hours.

Note that the PCTF approach does not lead to a degree or certification recommendation from UWA, only certification issued by the ALSDE at the Class B level. However, if you wish to pursue a graduate degree program in education, as well as Class A certification, you may be interested in the Alternative A Program.

Who is this degree for?

  • Educators working in the Alabama school system
  • Educators seeking Class B teaching certification
