4+1 Bridge Program in Education

4+1 Bridge Program in Education

Ursuline has built a reputation around our commitment to excellence in teacher preparation.

Following this tradition, The Education Unit offers an accelerated path to becoming a teacher that allows a candidate to earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in just five years!

As a candidate in the 4+1 Bridge Program, you will pursue a major in the arts and sciences or in another undergraduate major that interests you during your undergraduate years. This coursework will support the licensure area you plan to pursue. During your undergraduate program, you will also engage in 12-15 credits of education courses that will provide the foundation upon which you will build the education program you plan to pursue at the master’s level. Once you earn your undergraduate degree, you’ll enter our Master Apprenticeship Program (MAP) where you will engage full-time in coursework and school settings, leading to eligibility to apply for the Ohio 4-year, Resident Educator teacher license. You’ll leave Ursuline College ready to provide stimulating and educationally-challenging instruction in P-12 educational settings.

Our programs are accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

Outcomes of the program:

  • You’ll witness your own personal development and learn to cultivate academic abilities in others.
  • You’ll pursue an integrated body of knowledge drawn from the content area you’re studying.
  • Through additional courses in your content area(s), you’ll establish depth to your professional knowledge base.
  • You’ll be prepared to serve the profession and the community through the professional development sequence specific to your area of specialization.
