If you enjoy working with children and young adults, teaching may be your ideal career. And if you think you want to teach, Dominican is the right school for you.

The Dominican University School of Education offers a rich variety of degree programs for undergraduates. Here, you’ll earn your degree in a liberal arts discipline along with a teaching license. That means you’ll be eligible to start in the classroom right after graduation.

We offer programs in elementary and secondary education, a special certificate in grades K through 12, and combined degrees. You can also earn a BA/MA or BA/MS in six years or less.
