This +1 Accelerated Program offers undergraduate majors Geography & Urban Studies in the College of Liberal Arts the exciting opportunity to complete their undergraduate degree AND, then, in the year following, a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education. The master's program meets the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s program requirements for Teacher Certification in Social Studies (Grades 7-12).
These four graduate courses are to be completed by the end of your senior year and will count towards both your undergraduate and graduate degree program requirements:
Only students who have been accepted for the +1 Accelerated Program will be able to register for these classes as undergraduates.The graduate courses will be coded as undergraduate courses on your undergraduate transcript and undergraduate tuition will be applied.After you matriculate into the +1 Accelerated Program, the graduate level indicator will be added to these courses so that they may also count towards your master's degree.
Students must work with advisors to develop an academic plan to ensure that the bachelor’s degree will contain sufficient content area coursework to meet the requirements for the Secondary Education MEd with a concentration in Social Studies Education.
