Future Teachers Program
Are you considering a career in Teaching? The MU Future Teachers Program creates opportunities for high school students with a strong academic record and a desire to make a difference to enroll in college-level teacher preparation courses as part of a dual enrollment career exploration pathway.
As an MU Future Teacher you will have the benefit of becoming a member of the MU community. This will allow you to pursue your potential career choice and receive the following benefits.
- Support: You will be assigned a TED faculty and TED student mentor to support you during your dual enrollment experience.
- Access: You will be able to use all MU facilities (library, athletic facilities, writing center, etc.) while you are dual enrolled.
- Experience: While not all participants may ultimately pursue admission to MU or a major in education, all will benefit from the knowledge gained, the relationships built, and the personal growth and development as a result of the experience.
- College Credit: Students who begin fall of their junior year and participate in each subsequent semester will have the opportunity to earn up to 12 college credits that can be applied toward eligibility for teacher certification in the Commonwealth of PA.
