The Griswold location is a unique “Learning Lab” in the fact that the university shares facilities within the district education complex in Griswold, Connecticut's Griswold High School. Graduate-level courses leading to CT Teacher Certification, the Master of Arts in Teaching degree, CT School Administrator Certification and the Sixth Year degree in Educational Leadership are offered evenings and week-ends throughout the year. Utilizing Summer II, Fall, Winter Intersession, Spring, Late Spring and Summer I sessions, candidates are able to move forward quickly in meeting their certification or degree requirements.
Additionally, a highly-respected Graduate Internship Program is offered to eligible candidates seeking certification and master's degrees. Through the internship program candidates work during the day in area schools, taking courses in the evening. School districts cover the costs of tuition for 36 graduate courses (usually adequate to cover all certification requirements and most master's coursework, as well), and candidates benefit from a full year of experience in a public school.
The Griswold location offers a quality alternative for graduate candidates in Eastern Connecticut. All courses are offered at Griswold. The faculty at Griswold is comprised of full-time faculty members, area superintendents, principals, and master teachers, who are keenly aware of the reality of what is happening in today's schools. This contributes to a strong focus on applied learning and in giving graduate candidates practical opportunities in learning, teaching and career networking.
Sacred Heart University-Griswold maintains close working relationships with area school districts, providing students with a direct link for field experience, graduate internships, student teaching opportunities and subsequent employment. The university also opens its doors to area educators for teaching methodology exhibitions and other functions which may further their professional development.
