Adolescence Teaching Fellows

 The Department of Adolescence Education announces a new initiative leading to Professional Certification in Inclusive Adolescence Education.  The Teaching Fellows Program is a highly competitive scholarship program that situates graduate school learning in secondary schools.  Teacher candidates complete a one-year intensive study while spending two days a week in an urban school collaborating with master teachers and youth-researchers on action research projects.  Nazareth College provides 12 credits of graduate assistantship for the selected candidates.  The Teaching Fellows Program is limited to five students.  The cohort of Teaching Fellows will begin their graduate studies during Summer Session II 2013.

Highlights of the Adolescence Teaching Fellows Program:

  • Get your Master’s Degree in 15 months and be better positioned for the job market;
  • Gain valuable school-based research experience (GREAT for your resume) and support the voices of youth-researchers (GREAT for our community);
  • Build community with master teachers and dedicated youth-researchers as you collaboratively design research with real impact;
  • Earn a total of 12 credit hours of graduate assistantship (6 for fall and 6 for spring semester);
  • Hone your teaching and leadership skills as you share your research with the community and begin to BE the change you want to see…
