B.S./M.S. in Education (Five-Year Program)

For Education Majors

Students may pursue their undergraduate degree and initial teacher certification as an Education major and their graduate degree in one of the programs noted below.

At the end of the sophomore year, a review of the student's content and pedagogy coursework will be required to determine acceptance into the Teacher Certification Program.

Graduate course work begins in the students'  junior year while they simultaneously continue to complete their bachelor’s degree requirements. Students are awarded their undergraduate degree once all of the graduation requirements for both the bachelor's and master's degrees are met.

Two Degrees in Five Years

The undergraduate curricula for the accelerated B.S./ M.S. program is the same as for the stand-alone B.S. in Education program. The graduate component is provided in a blended format where the majority of course work is offered online and supplemented with classroom-based and work-based field experiences/graduate internships.

Students transferring into the School of Education from another Drexel University program or from another college or university may consider this program as an option.

The Co-op Experience

A six-month co-op in an industry or business related to each student's primary area of teacher certification, in addition to student teaching, is a program requirement in the Five-Year B.S./M.S. program.  For example, a student seeking certification in chemistry might co-op in the chemical industry. This provides the student with a unique perspective that adds significant value and depth to their classroom teaching.
