    Teaching Fellows Program M.Ed. (36 Credits)

    Teaching fellows start graduate-level courses in June following receipt of a bachelor’s degree, and then in September begin full-time work in a partnering district for the entire school year. Initial license fellows complete their practicum hours in the role of the license they are pursuing through their master’s degree. Fellows receive continuous guidance and support from veteran teachers, supervisors, and education advisors.

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

    Placements are available in urban and suburban school districts.
