Education- Birth to 3rd Grade (EBT) - Degree Completion

Open to women and men, Alverno’s Paraprofessional to Teacher Licensure program is a streamlined path to licensure for practicing paraprofessionals who have an associate degree (or at least 48 college credits) but not a bachelor’s degree.

In 24 months, you can earn a Bachelor of Science in Education from one of the most respected and innovative schools in Wisconsin.

Classes are taught in a hybrid format with both online and in-classroom sessions, and other course work may fall within the regular 15-week format. Each student must also complete 18 weeks of student teaching.
