High school instructors who teach courses for concurrent credit can further prepare their students for college by taking Baker University graduate courses in their content area.
Baker University’s School of Professional and Graduate Studies offers graduate-level courses to teachers at a reduced tuition of $100 per credit hour. Instructors can work toward the 18 hours of required graduate credit to ensure that their students can continue to earn college credit.
“When we became aware of how recent changes in accreditation requirements were impacting area high schools and their ability to offer concurrent credit courses, we wanted to offer our services,” said Dr. Jacob Bucher, dean of Baker University’s School of Professional and Graduate Studies.
Bucher added, “Baker has long prided itself on serving the needs of the community and being a leader in education, and so we immediately began work on a plan that would allow high school concurrent credit instructors to get the graduate hours they need, at a feasible rate.”
Courses offered through this concurrent credit program include math, English, chemistry, French, Spanish, history, and physics. Courses are offered online and on our Overland Park and Baldwin City campuses. Additional disciplines, including political science and psychology, are listed in the course schedule posted at bakerU.edu/cci. Courses are continually added, and instructors can check back for additions.
