TFA and MTF Partnership (Master of Education)

Christian Brothers University has partnered with Teach for America and Memphis Teaching Fellows to offer a tailored M.Ed. degree, which includes 9 hours of experiential learning credit. CBU grants credit to teachers from our partnered groups in recognition of the rigorous preparation TFA and MTF partipants undergo as part of their initial teaching licensure program. Credit will be posted for the following courses:

Course Credit Hours
CIED 606 Classroom Leadership  3
CIED 605 Urban Teaching Strategies  3
EDFD 608 Fundamentals of Urban Education 3
Total credit hours earned through this partnership: 9


Program Cost

CBU assesses a fee of $150 per credit hour for experiential learning credit, for a total of $1350.00. Tuition for a comparable number of credit hours is substantially greater, so TFA/MTF students receive and amazing discount for these courses through our partnership!

Students in the Master of Education for Teach for America and Memphis Teaching Fellows Program enter the CBU Program in the Summer or Fall following their first year of teaching service. If your situation does not match this, please contact the Coordinator of the M.Ed., Dr. Ellen Faith, for advising.
