Educational Studies

Degrees Offered:
Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

Overview

The Educational Studies program is offered entirely through the Accelerated Professional Programs (APP). This non-licensure degree allows working adults to complete a bachelor’s degree while remaining employed. Students in this program may choose to complete a track in Elementary Education or one in Special Education. Students are able to complete this degree without resigning from their positions since they will not be required to complete a semester of student teaching. However, this degree does not make the recipient eligible for a teaching license. Once the degree is completed, the graduate may seek a lateral entry teaching position where he or she could work as a classroom teacher while completing the remaining requirements for licensure.
