Educators Cohort Offers Special Tuition Rate to Teachers

Braniff Graduate School Offers Special Program for Local Educators

Through the Braniff Graduate School's Educators Cohort, secondary school teachers and administrators can now pursue a master's degree at UD with support from a community of their professional peers. The Educators Cohort will provide members with access to numerous exclusive perks and benefits, including a special tuition rate and no course fees. Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis through August for the fall 2013 semester.

"We believe that teachers are charged with no small task, namely the preservation of civilization itself. To do that well, they need an opportunity to return to study themselves, to read and re-read the best things that have been written in community with their colleagues," said Braniff Dean David Sweet. "The purpose of this special program for teachers is to provide an opportunity for that growth."

While cohort members will share a common curriculum and classes with non-cohort students, they will begin their studies as a group during a special orientation for the Educators Cohort. Then, throughout each semester, they will enjoy other events geared specifically towards their professional and intellectual development.

"There are other colleges in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with special programs for teachers, but they are, for the most part, devoted to teacher training," said Associate Provost Brian Murray. "Our Educators Cohort will focus exclusively on the content within each student's academic discipline."

Braniff Graduate School offers degree programs in several humanities disciplines, including American studies, English, philosophy, politics and theology. In addition, the school's interdisciplinary humanities program provides students an opportunity to design a significant portion of their curriculum from all Braniff courses.
