The University of Providence Education program prepares prospective teachers in K-12 by providing a thorough and balanced education in both teaching methods and content knowledge. Our graduates are heavily recruited throughout the region because they are well-rounded and highly motivated teachers. The program prepares teachers for elementary or secondary teaching, incorporating a minimum of 161 clinical hours in K-12 classrooms prior to student teaching.
The secondary program offers majors in the national highest need content areas in science, math, and special education, among many other options, with a program-wide placement rate of 83 percent within their field in a year. All faculty are licensed teachers with real-world experience in K-12 classrooms.
The elementary education, special education, and secondary education majors are available as distance-enabled degrees through a combination of asynchronous and live hybrid streamed classes. Travel to campus is not required, and completion of a hybrid streamed class is possible asynchronously.
Undergraduate tuition is $12,120/semester for full-time students (12-18 credits) or $790/credit for part-time students. All PSJH caregivers, benefits-eligible spouses or partners, and dependents are eligible for a 50 percent reduction of tuition charges for eligible programs offered at the University of Providence.
