Take an accelerated route to teaching at the master's level.
Are you ready to make a professional pivot to educate the next generation? The Master Apprenticeship Program (MAP) is an intensive one-year program that immerses you in the classroom during the school year and allows you to take your foundational methods courses in the summer. Our instructors and mentor teachers are certified, experienced and highly qualified master teachers who provide you with a unique educational experience (thus the Master Apprenticeship). Our goal is to help you to achieve your dream of making a difference in the lives of children. At the conclusion of the year, you graduate with a Master of Arts degree and are eligible for state licensure.
Cleveland Urban Teacher Residency (CUTR)
CUTR is an innovative partnership between Ursuline College and Breakthrough Charter Schools, offering an apprenticeship-based program of study for individuals with a deep commitment to urban teaching.
Students applying for admission must meet the general requirements for graduate admission and the specific requirements of the MAP program noted below:
- Demonstrate a 3.0 GPA in the chosen content specific area.
- Sit for the Graduate Record Examination - this is required of candidates who have not earned a B or better in college math and composition courses, of candidates whose undergraduate GPA is less than 3.0, and of candidates whose content specific GPA is less than 3.0.
- Complete all content area prerequisites to their course of study and pass the content-specific Ohio Assessments for Educators Exam before they are eligible for an Ohio teaching license.
College transcripts are evaluated to ensure that pre-program licensure requirements are met. If candidates have not completed prerequisites when their transcripts are audited for admission, all prerequisite coursework must be completed with a B or better and taken in a traditional on-site classroom.
