Return to Department.  

Admission Requirements:

Application and transfer into the +1 component of the program can occur after meeting with the Program director for course review, earning 60 credits, (i.e., Junior standing) and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. To matriculate into the +1 MS program, students must also earn a minimum of 3.0 GPA in MS courses (600 level) taken during the BS/BSED portion of the program. Applications are to be submitted via the SLATE system (see graduate admissions website at: http://grad.udel.edu/apply/). Applicants must fill out the Graduate Course Approval Form for 4+1 Admission Application (available at the graduate admissions website identified above) and submit it to the Graduate College once they apply through SLATE. There is no application fee to apply to the +1 component of the program. GRE scores and letters of recommendation are not required. Admissions decisions will be made by an Admissions Committee, consisting of the Program Director (a faculty member in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology) and a faculty member from the School of Education that teaches in the program.

Program Requirements:

The 4+1 program is available to UD undergraduate students from two of the concentrations in the Elementary Teacher Education major: the BSEd Elementary Teacher Education - Middle School Science Concentration and the BSEd Elementary Teacher Education - Single Certification Focus Area Concentration. Students in the Single Certification ETE Concentration will be considered for admission if they have substantive science coursework (e.g., a minor in a STEM or related discipline). Students from both programs should consult with their advisor early in the program to ensure they choose appropriate science electives to meet the prerequisite requirements for subsequent graduate coursework. Students apply and are admitted to the 4+1 program as juniors (before they graduate) but cannot remain in the program unless they earn a BS in Elementary Teacher Education.

A maximum of 6 credits of graduate-level courses may be dual-counted toward the students undergraduate and graduate degree.
