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’s degree or at least 60 credits but not a bachelor’s degree.

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

Classes will alternate between on campus and online – ensuring you’re able to balance work, family and an otherwise busy schedule. The Para to Teacher Licensure program integrates the best of online learning with critical in-classroom instruction.

Why a Bachelor of Science in Education?

If you’ve dreamed of taking your place at the front of the classroom, this program will take your classroom skills to the next level with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education.

Why Alverno?

Alverno’s outcome-oriented curriculum is known nationally and internationally for focusing on you, the student.
