Drexel’s B.S. and M.S. in Education is an accelerated degree program in which students have the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in four years.
The only one of its kind in the country in Teacher Education, the program is ideal for students looking to earn undergraduate and graduate degrees. Upon completion of the program, students graduate with two degrees and are more marketable to prospective employers.
Throughout the curriculum, students are exposed to additional skills other than those traditionally learned in an undergraduate education. The program is also a beneficial economic option, as all courses are offered at the undergraduate rate.
Drexel is known for the high level of clinical and field-based experiences offered to Education students. Field experiences include a range of formal, school and community activities and give students invaluable first-hand exposure to the classroom. Through field experiences, students develop an individual, professional portfolio that shows the progression of their growth and understanding as teachers.
Four levels of experience are required: Observation, Exploration, Pre-Student Teaching, and Student Teaching.
