If you know you want to pursue a career in education, you can apply to the Teacher Pathways program. You could earn your BA plus your MAT—and licensure—in five years.
While enrolled in the Teacher Pathways program, you will meet with your Teacher Pathways advisor and take undergraduate education courses with a social justice focus. These courses are taught by graduate faculty and will introduce you to educational theory and practice. The Pathway also includes practicum experiences in K-12 public school settings. You can apply to Teacher Pathways as an incoming, first-year, or second-year student.
Upon successful completion of the Teacher Pathways program, you can apply for early admission to the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling.
