Follow Us!

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.


Full-time, first-year and transfer undergraduate School of Education students who start their studies in 2023 are eligible for a 50% tuition scholarship.

A Great Education, a Great Value

Duquesne University is rated the #6 best value in PA and #65 nationally based on academic quality and net cost (U.S. News and World Report). Financial assistance in the form of aid, scholarships and tuition awards are available. 

We recognize the important roles that teachers play in our society. As a student, you will be eligible for additional funds if you have SAT scores (Math and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing) of 1250 or greater. Our Leading Teacher Program is committed to ensuring that the best-prepared teachers are available for the classrooms of the future.

Test-Optional Admission

Opt-out of the ACT or SAT. Do you feel that your scores may not reflect your academic potential and successes? Consider Duquesne University's test-optional admission. This might be the right option for you, especially in this current climate.

"There are many more careers out there that you can choose from. Some more lucrative, some with more flexibility, some that may feel more honored but your choice allows you to impact thousands of students. One lesson at a time! One conversation at a time! One student at a time!"
