This five year program enables Biology, English, History and Mathematics majors to earn a BA in the academic discipline, an MA in Secondary Education and become licensed to teach in grades 9-12. By starting the MA in Secondary Education during their final year of undergraduate study, students obtain their teaching license more quickly and at a very affordable price in comparison to traditional graduate degree programs.

Expectations & Requirements


Students must have a major in Biology, English, History or Mathematics at Roosevelt University, and apply for admission prior to the start of their senior year.

Teaching is an immensely rewarding profession, but requires a lot of time, commitment and effort. Students can expect focused and practical assignments, engaging discussion and small group projects, and intensive field experiences in diverse schools and classrooms. During the final semester, students complete a 15 week student teaching experience at a partner school under the guidance of a mentor teacher and a university supervisor.

I just love my students and our program. As a former principal, nothing gives me greater joy than seeing our students go on to become outstanding middle school and high school teachers.
