Learn about our programs!

Our programs are nationally accredited and guided by standards from the State 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 freshman year. During your studies you will also have the opportunity to study abroad if you wish.

In the Leading Teacher Program you will become a learning theorist, a curriculum designer, an expert in school content, a master practitioner, and an instructional leader are five domains critical to becoming a leader in the classroom. While enrolled in the program, you will complete a set of core experiences in teaching methodology and participate in guided fieldwork, as well as complete the university core classes. The five domains are infused with three themes of Leadership, Diversity, and Technology. The 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.

"I finally got to see what being a real teacher was like! I feel so much closer to being the educator I've always dreamed of being. I'll never forget this life changing experience." - Caterina Macri
