Below you’ll find a comprehensive listing of the Graduate Teaching Certificate programs available from schools in New Hampshire.

Getting an advanced teaching certificate in New Hampshire doesn’t just open up new professional doors – it can also set you up to earn more money. Most school districts in the Granite State give educators a salary bump for having fifteen additional credit hours beyond a bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree, and an add-on certificate is one way to earn those credits. Most districts pay teachers with this additional training an extra $1,000 to $1,500 a year, according to data compiled by the New Hampshire Department of Education.

Having an additional endorsement area can also make you more marketable to prospective employers. New Hampshire has a number of teacher shortage areas identified by the U.S. Department of Education, including art, math, music, and special education. Teachers with qualifications in these areas are hot commodities, and – even better – may be eligible to defer or cancel some of their federal student loans.
