Our Teach in Five program provides guidance and advice to undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in elementary, middle, or high school teaching. You can join the program as early as your application to Ithaca College as a first year student, or as late as your senior year (depending on your major). The program is flexible and has multiple points of entry. Through Teach in Five, you will also be invited to participate in educational and social activities to help you get to know other students interested in teaching, alums who share their experiences, and guidance on the graduate school application process. Upon successful completion of all graduate school prerequisites and undergraduate degree program requirements, you’ll be fast-tracked for admission to our graduate program.
Through Teach in Five advising, you will understand how to complete your bachelors degree, masters degree, and New York State initial teaching certification right here at Ithaca College! During your first four years, you can lean on us for support as you complete a major in a field of your choice and participate in our popular Education Studies minor.
