Program Info

The Neag School offers a rigorous Integrated Bachelor’s/Master’s (IB/M) program in teacher education. It's designed to provide students with an optimum combination of experiences in which they can build content area knowledge; knowledge of teaching and learning; and the practical knowledge required to be a successful and effective teacher for all students. The program is a five-year, upper-division undergraduate program combined with a Master of Arts degree program.

Majors include Elementary Education (grades 1-6), Music Education (grades PK-12), Special Education (grades K-12), and Secondary Education (grades 7-12) in these subject areas: English, Math, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, General Science, Physics), Social Studies, and World Languages (French, German, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish).

Graduates of the IB/M program receive a Bachelor of Science in education and a Master of Arts in curriculum and instruction, or a Master of Arts in educational psychology (special education). The program begins with students completing at least two years of general education and subject area study prior to admission. Once admitted to the IB/M program, students generally complete two years of subject area major studies and professional education in teacher education leading to a Bachelor of Education. The undergraduate years are followed by one year of graduate-level professional education leading to a Master of Curriculum and Instruction or Educational Psychology. Completion of all program requirements results in the recommendation for certification as a teacher in Connecticut.
