Additional Information


The Scholar Teacher Education Program (S.T.E.P.) is a unique, five-year, combined baccalaureate and master’s program for students preparing to teach at the childhood and adolescent levels. The first four years of S.T.E.P. allow for completion of the General Education requirements, a student-selected major in a liberal arts discipline and additional New York State requirements for certification. Course work and field experience at the undergraduate level lead directly into a full-time, field-based course of study on the graduate (fifth-year) level.

Courses during the fifth year are graduate-level courses. The fifth-year sequence requires active participation in schools including one semester of student teaching.
