Programs for Teachers

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 jboazman@udallas.edu 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.
