Department of Curriculum and Learning Launches Innovative Programs
Our students deserve committed and knowledgeable teachers in the classroom. Often time the experience brought by career changers, veterans, and parents returning to the workforce outweighs any coursework
The Department of Curriculum and Learning is excited to launch new post-baccalaurate programs to attract the most diverse and best teachers we can. The new programs, just approved by the State of Connecticut and the US Department of Education, require a bachelor’s degree for admission but you get to complete the courses at the undergraduate level.
This will save you a ton of money as we now get to charge the undergraduate tuition rate and you can now access the financial aid packages available to undergraduates. These stand-alone programs will lead to eligibility for certification while preparing you for the classroom.
The 40.5 credit programs can lead to certification in Early Childhood, Elementary Education, and Bilingual Elementary Education. Since we have the hybrid, online, and face to face classes to meet the schedules of any working professional many students, who take summer and winter classes, finish the program in a year.
To celebrate the launch of these innovative tracks into the classroom the School of Education is extending the Shea Scholarship. You can earn an award up to $2,500 in tuition money.
To learn more attend our Graduate Open House is April 12th at 3:30-6:30 in the Adanti Student Center. To start your application to the new post-baccalaureate visit http://www.southernct.edu/admissions/ If you want to apply for the Shea Scholarship go to http://tinyurl.com/soeshea
