The Office of Partnership Programs manages the alternative certification, subsidized, and non-traditional programs within the Hunter College School of Education and supports students in these programs. Working in partnership with a variety of local and national organizations, we offer programs in a wide range of teacher certification areas and school leadership certification for both novice and experienced teachers. Our programs offer participants the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in schools while enrolled in graduate coursework at Hunter College with many providing subsidized tuition.
