I can't say enough about the Education program. I was so close with all of my professors...I was always emailing and meeting with them. And the small class sizes are great - it was so personal. I loved it!

Dual-Degree Program for Future Teachers

Two degrees, two licenses, five years...

The Dual-Degree Program for Future Teachers is an "honor's level" program designed for committed and qualified students who want to become teachers. It features the opportunity to earn an Education bachelor's degree and a Master of Education degree in five years, plus two teaching licenses - one to teach at the elementary school level, and the second to teach children with moderate disabilities (grades preK - 8).

Dual-Degree Program Benefits

The Dual-Degree Program for Future Teachers offers the following benefits:

  • Early admission to the Education major
  • Earn a first license as you complete your bachelor's degree
  • Early admission to the Master of Education program in your senior year
  • Earn a second license as you complete your M.Ed.
  • The opportunity for an early field experience (sophomore year)
  • Priority acceptance into a study-abroad program in your sophomore year (optional)
  • Cost savings equivalent to five graduate courses over a traditional master's student
  • Broad experience in a variety of settings
  • Deep understanding of best teaching practices
  • Two degrees, two licenses
  • Enhanced potential for teaching job opportunities

Qualified students who are interested in this opportunity are accepted into the program as entering first year students. Those who maintain academic and disposition standards described above are guaranteed a spot in the Education major (usually determined at the end of the sophomore year) and in the Master of Education program (usually determined after completing an undergraduate degree).

As you finish your bachelor's degree, you are able to take two graduate courses in each semester of your senior year, the cost of which are covered by your undergraduate tuition.

Savings over entering the master's degree program after graduation amount to more than $8,000.
