Teach what you love.
Ursuline's undergraduate education program is a 4+1 bridge program. As an undergrad, you'll pursue a major that interests you and supports the licensure area you plan to pursue. (That's the 4.) You'll take 12-15 credits of education courses that will provide the foundation you'll build upon at the master’s level. Once you earn your BA, you’ll enter our graduate teacher-licensure program, which you will complete in one year. (That's the 1.) You’ll leave Ursuline College with bachelor's and master's degrees, ready to provide stimulating, engaging and educationally challenging instruction in P-12 educational settings.
The teaching profession remains a rewarding, worthwhile and respected career. In today’s changing world, opportunities exist for teachers who are well prepared, flexible and adaptable. There is a demand for teachers in the far Midwest, West, and South, as well as opportunities closer to home. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reports employment of kindergarten, elementary, and middle school teachers is projected to grow 12% by 2022. The need for both high school and special education teachers is expected to grow on this timeline as well. Our graduates secure jobs in public, parochial, private and charter institutions.
