The 4+1 Master of Education Program allows undergraduate students in Bachelor of Science in Education with at least 60 undergraduate credit hours and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale to take graduate coursework in the Master of Education, Teacher Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction Concentration, M.E.  program, which will not only count towards fulfilling their undergraduate degree requirements, but will also count toward the completion of the Master of Education program. Qualified students may take up to 12 credit hours (4 courses) from the Master of Education curriculum, which will reduce the time necessary to complete the graduate degree from two years to as little as one year following the completion of the undergraduate degree (see table below). 

The admission criteria for participation in the 4+1 Undergraduate to Master of Education program are as follows:

  • Students must have completed 60 undergraduate credit hours toward their baccalaureate degree.
  • Students must maintain a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale while taking Master of Education courses.
