Energize. Enrich. Renew.
Recognizing that teachers are a vital, and often underappreciated, force in maintaining
the strength of our nation, the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts welcomes teachers
to enroll in any of its degree programs, but the following programs have been designed
especially with teachers in mind:
These programs attempt to schedule many of their course offerings at times when teachers
can participate in them, that is, in the later afternoons and evenings and in one
of the university's two summer sessions. We also welcome you to join the Educators Cohort, participate in the Summer Institute in Classical Languages or engage with fellow educators in one of our AP Summer Institutes.
Join the Educators Cohort for Affordable Tuition:
Knowing that a graduate education can be cost-prohibitive for many, the University
of Dallas wishes to make participation in its degree programs more affordable by enrolling
full-time teachers and administrators in our Educators Cohort. As members of this
cohort, educators will receive a special tuition rate.
If you would like to become a member of the Educators Cohort, please submit a letter
to the Braniff Graduate Office on official school stationary signed by your principal or headmaster that clearly states your current, full-time employment status as a school teacher and the term
of employment. A letter is required for every academic year that the student will
receive the Educators Cohort rate.
Summer Institute in Classical Languages
Often the question isn't “Why should I study a classical language?” but “When can
I find the time?” Since 1976 the University of Dallas Summer Program has provided
the opportunity to study Greek and Latin outside the limits of the regular academic
year. Learn more.
Advanced Placement Summer Institutes
Every summer the University of Dallas holds Advanced Placement Summer Institutes for Teachers. There are institutes in a variety of content areas. For more information please
contact Janette Boazman, Ph.D. at firstname.lastname@example.org or (972) 265-5714.
Dallas Institute of Humanities & Culture
For teachers who are interested in pursuing one of these degrees, the University is
fortunate to have the support of the Dallas Institute for Humanities and Culture. The DIHC is gathering space for teachers, where they can refresh their love of their
discipline and share with each other some of the war stories that have been part of
their effort to maintain the quality of education offered by their schools. The DIHC
hosts a Teachers Institute every summer, which consists of two 6 credit hour courses,
each offered in alternate summers, in Epic and in Tragedy and Comedy. These courses may both be used toward a degree in the Humanities program in the Braniff Graduate School.
