Accelerate your teaching career by taking a five-year route to certification.
Interested in becoming a teacher? Enroll in a program that will show you what the profession is all about and give you top-caliber training in the field through Fordham’s Graduate School of Education. You’ll gain extensive experience in the classroom, working in one of Fordham’s partner schools in New York City, as you complete both a bachelor’s degree in the liberal arts and sciences and a Master of Science in Teaching within five years.
You’ll take part in seminars and fieldwork during your undergraduate years, learning more about the many roles of a teacher and your chosen area of certification. In senior year you can start taking classes for the master’s degree, and after graduation, you’ll complete two semesters of both academic work and full-time student teaching, working with a mentor. Overall, the program provides more than 600 hours of comprehensive experience in public schools.
This program is grounded in Fordham’s Jesuit values of acceptance, compassion, and understanding of the whole individual. Its students become highly qualified, reflective, insightful teachers equipped with a broad base of knowledge that serves them well throughout their careers.
Of course, you’ll learn about more than teaching during your undergraduate studies here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, economics, mathematics, languages, science, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
