Scholar Teacher Education Program (STEP)

STEP is a comprehensive and economical option.

Adelphi school of education student in classroom looking at papersA unique, five-year, combined bachelor’s/master’s program for undergraduate students preparing to teach at the childhood and adolescent grade levels. The continuity and cohesiveness of the graduate and undergraduate aspects of the program make the curriculum both economical and comprehensive.

The structure of STEP is particularly effective in meeting the needs of the transfer student. Most students entering the program at the junior level have a three-year course of study, which takes them through their master’s degree in education; other students who major in one of the natural sciences or math may take longer. These students should consult with the appropriate academic adviser prior to enrollment to see exactly how long it will take to meet all requirements.

Admissions Requirements

  • Freshmen: minimum 3.0 high school GPA; SAT of 1090 or higher
  • Transfer students: minimum 2.75 GPA
