Earn your bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education through one seamless program that saves you time and tuition money.
Graduating with a master’s degree is a surefire way to snag higher paying, more specialized teaching positions early on. Our affordable dual-degree programs for education majors transition you into our nationally acclaimed Graduate School of Education as an undergrad, and put you on track to earn your bachelor’s and master’s degrees in as few as 5 years.
After 5 years of teaching, you’ll need to enroll in a graduate program that prepares you for a professional license. Knock out required grad courses as an undergrad and complete both degrees in as few as 5 years, and you won’t have to worry about taking time off of work to return to grad school later on.
Dual-degree students save 16%–73% on graduate tuition. You may also qualify for 12 free graduate credits through The Lesley Dividend award.
With a master’s degree, you’ll have the skills and real-world experiences you need to qualify for a wider range of opportunities. By choosing to earn an additional license in a new area, such as English as a Second Language, you’ll create even more possibilities.
