Bachelor's Plus Program

Do you have a bachelor’s degree in another field but a strong desire to teach? Expedite your teaching licensure in under two years with Ashland University’s distinctive Bachelor’s Plus Program.

What to Expect in the Bachelor’s Plus Program

Ashland University’s unique Bachelor’s Plus program is designed for students who have already earned a baccalaureate degree and want to become teachers. In this program, instead of completing another degree, you’ll work toward one of more than 15 teacher licensure areas available through the Dwight Schar College of Education at an accelerated pace.
