The Education dual degree programs allow you to meet requirements for a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in an accelerated program. Full-time students can usually complete a dual degree program in five years.
The Education Dual Degree Programs are designed for students who demonstrate a high degree of maturity and academic potential. They require you to meet high standards of academic achievement in both your undergraduate and graduate level coursework. If you're a student in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, you may apply for admission to the Dual Degree Programs at the end of your sophomore year.
To be accepted into these programs, you must have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher during your first four semesters of college. The formal application involves creating a portfolio application, which is reviewed by a team of undergraduate and graduate faculty. If you are a transfer student, you should consult your Division Director about the application.
"Teaching is a noble profession. Although I graduated many years ago, I did teach for a short time in the Cambridge, Mass. and New York City School Systems. I was very well prepared to teach and loved being able to make a difference in a child's life." "My experiences were in low-income neighborhoods and I shared with the students that an education was their passport out of poverty."
