Five-Year Track: Bachelor and Master's Degrees
Teacher Certification Programs for Fordham Undergraduate Students
The FIve-Year Integrated Teacher Education Track provides opportunities for Fordham undergraduates to complete a BA/BS in a liberal arts and sciences major and a 36 or 45 credit Master of Science in Teaching (MST).
The integrated track is based on a reflective practitioner model with cohorts of students progressing through a sequence of coordinated courses and field experiences designed to link theory and practice.
Graduates of the programs are highly qualified teachers who respect individuals in a multicultural society, excel in academic disciplines, acquire a broad knowledge base, learn in meaningful contexts, become reflective practitioners, and engage in life-long learning.
Why should I apply for the Five-Year Track Program?
Beyond earning both bachelor's and master's degrees in five years, the Graduate School of Education works to prepare and develop teachers who are committed to professional and school excellence, reflective practice, and lifelong learning.

The practical application of theory, teaching strategies, curriculum construction, and behavior management is woven into student teaching throughout our program. Generally, student teaching requires one full academic year, with placements in two different grade levels. In the fall and spring semester, students complete student teaching requirements as prescribed by their program.
Students are mentored by a field specialist and placed in our high needs partnership schools in New York City.
