The deadline for ACESJU Cohort 3 applications is February 15, 2013. The cohort will begin in June 2013 with a summer session of classes at Saint Joseph’s University.
Who we are looking for: Our next cohort is open to recent college graduates (including those who will be graduating in May 2013) seeking teaching placements and certification in grades 4-12. We will offer an M.S. in Education degree with Certification in Elementary/Middle Years, Grades 4-8 and an M.S. in Education degree with Certification in Secondary with a Content Area, Grades 7-12. You will have the opportunity to list your teaching level preference on the application.
These degrees and certification options require certain prerequisites. Applicants will need to have graduated with a degree in their desired teaching field (i.e. English, History, Biology, etc…) or have a satisfactory number of credits in a given teaching field (i.e. 21 credits in English and 21 credits in Math). Certain exceptions may be made for comparable courses or degrees. For example, an applicant may have taken courses in Communications or Journalism instead of English, or Political Science instead of History. Interested applicants can request that ACESJU review their academic background to determine if prerequisites are met. Additionally, applicants must meet the academic requirements for admissions to Saint Joseph's University's M.S. Education program.
