Accelerated B.A./M.A.T Degree Program
For students considering a career in secondary education, we have partnered with NLU’s National College of Education on a program that lets you earn a bachelor’s degree in your subject of interest and a Master’s in Teaching degree in only five years. You will graduate with deep experience in your subject — biology, English, math or social science — plus a master’s degree, meaning higher demand and higher pay. The program also includes a teaching certificate.
