The Combined Accelerated Studies in Education (CASE) program is a dual-certification, dual-degree program in the Pitt School of Education.
It is a 4+1 program that allows students to earn their bachelor’s and master’s degree in an accelerated time frame that saves time and money. Students complete prerequisite courses in the freshman and sophomore years, and then apply to transfer into the Pitt School of Education. Students first work on their Bachelor of Science (BS) in Applied Developmental Psychology and then move directly onto the Master of Education (MEd) in Early Childhood and Special Education program.
Students are prepared for both the Pennsylvania PK-4 General Education and PK-12 Special Education teacher certifications.
