Bachelor of Arts or Science in Biology to Master of Arts in Secondary Education / 4+1 Program

The 4+1 Program option allows qualified undergraduates to complete the Biology major and the M.A. in Secondary Education in less time than would be possible if the two programs were taken separately. Nine graduate hours may be used both to complete the Bachelor’s degree (128 hours) and to satisfy specific course requirements for the Master’s program. The total number of required graduate credits (39) will remain the same.

Candidates may choose from the following courses for graduate credit while completing their undergraduate degree:

SCED 21000 (SCED 51000) Frameworks in Education

SCED 30400 (SCED 50400) Integrating Educational and Assistive Technology into the Classroom

SCED 31200 (SCED 51200) Instructional Strategies and Learning Communities for Adolescents

SPED 35700 (SCED 55700) Exceptional Learners in Inclusive Communities
