The graduate degree in curriculum and instruction gives students a foundation in research, technology, curriculum development and teaching strategies. Beyond that foundation, students pick one of three concentrations to focus their studies: literacy and reading, multidisciplinary education or special education. They also may earn an endorsement for a reading teacher or middle level education.
There are two routes to an economics degree at Bradley. One, through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, that prepares students for graduate school, government, public policy or law through a series of courses outside the business umbrella. The other route, through Foster College of Business, strengthens the business background for a career in the corporate world. Foster College is an AACSB-accredited college, which means it is recognized as one of the world’s top business schools. This gives students a lot of advantage over others.
Bradley’s biology programs take students from the classroom to the lab so that they can apply scientific principles as they study them. Because of the research emphasis, they’re exposed to the labs as a freshman and they’re encouraged to work with faculty on research teams throughout the rest of their academic experience. Students have four routes to a degree. They can earn a general biology degree if they want a broad background with room to explore several areas of the field. They also can add concentrations in cell and molecular biology, ecology and evolutionary biology, education or medical technology. Additionally, they can earn a graduate biology degree at Bradley.
