A Horizon-Expanding Education
Learn about our programs!
Our programs are nationally accredited and guided by standards from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and national professional organizations. You will learn from expert faculty and have the opportunity to experience a K-12 classroom setting as early as the second semester of your first year. During your studies, you will also have the opportunity to study abroad if you wish.
In our Leading Teacher Program, you will become a learning theorist, a curriculum designer, an expert in school content, a master practitioner and an instructional leader. These are five domains critical to becoming a leader in the classroom.
While enrolled in our program, you will complete a set of core experiences in teaching methodology and participate in guided fieldwork, as well as the university core classes. Our five domains are infused with the three themes of Leadership, Diversity and Technology. Our Leading Teacher Program curriculum bases the learning experiences of becoming a teacher in social justice and professional ethics at the heart of becoming a teacher at Duquesne.
