The structure of the Teaching program at Adelphi University is particularly effective in meeting the needs of the transfer student. Most students entering the program at the junior level have a three-year course of study, which takes them through their master’s degree in education; other students who major in one of the natural sciences or math may take longer. 

These students should consult with the appropriate academic adviser prior to enrollment to see exactly how long it will take to meet all requirements.
