Programs are designed to meet the needs of traditional-age students as well as working adults, with courses offered in semester, quarter, accelerated and cohort formats.

The School of Education

Quality teacher education places great emphasis on a strong liberal arts foundation. The interactive relationship among liberal arts, disciplinary area of study, professional education and communication skills uniquely prepares Benedictine University students for a career in teaching.

Today the University prepares individuals for three different certificates: Elementary, Special Education and Secondary, which span seven subject areas in biology, chemistry, English, math, physics, social sciences and Spanish.
