The program l.jpg
The Program

This is an accelerated program leading to elementary certification and a Master of Arts Degree with a Specialization in Elementary Education. Students will meet requirements by completing course work and working full time in a partnership school for one entire school year. This unique university-public school partnership will provide adults who have degrees in other fields to fulfill their desire to become teachers while helping to meet the demand for more teachers in Illinois.

Goals l.jpg

  • To provide a graduate program for adults with degrees to become certified elementary teachers in one year.

  • To meet the demands for the teacher shortage in Illinois

  • To develop partnerships with local schools that will benefit children, graduate students, teachers, and the school district.
