    Teaching Fellows Program M.Ed. (36 Credits)

    Teaching fellows start graduate-level courses in June following receipt of a bachelor’s degree. In mid to late August they begin as a fellow in a partnering district; in addition to their coursework, fellows gain practical, clinical experience. 

    Fellows receive continuous guidance and support from veteran teachers, supervisors, and education advisors.

    In exchange for one academic year of service, the district agrees to pay the equivalent of full graduate program tuition for a teaching fellow. Housing and other living expenses are the responsibility of the student.

    Placements available in urban and suburban school districts.
