Preparing you to teach students and to change lives


Years and You’re a Teacher

Our most popular program allows undergraduates to major in the area of their choice, and then add one year of graduate study, resulting in a BA or BS plus Master of Arts in Teaching.



Our small class size affords remarkable access to top-notch faculty, close mentoring relationships, and individualized career counseling.

Our graduates make a difference in school districts and institutions across the country as teachers at all grade levels, heads of education departments, and school administrators. As a group they have been drawn toward finding ways to close the achievement gap and improving the outcomes for at-risk and underserved students. They have had a profound impact on the education in countless communities.

“Quinnipiac’s training forced me to ask questions and not be satisfied with status quo answers. I was taught to think hard about changing the system for the better, rather than just being in it. That’s why I decided to be proactive and pursue a career in school administration. My training begged me to ask not what I can do for my classroom, but what can I do for my entire school.”
