College of Urban Education receives approval for new master’s program

The  College of Urban Education has received approval from the Michigan Department of Education and from the Higher Learning Commission to offer the Michigan Alternate Route to Interim Teaching Certification (MARITC). Recruitment of the first cohort of students for Davenport’s new Master of Urban Education program is now underway, with classes scheduled to begin Oct. 29.

Davenport’s College of Urban Education represents a real game changer for the industry, differentiated from other colleges of education based on the needs of Grand Rapids Public Schools and urban school districts like it. Davenport students will spend more time practicing in real classroom settings than they would in other programs, and they will learn how to use data analytics to improve student outcomes. They also will benefit from learning in a cohort format.

Having the Master of Urban Education program embedded within Innovation Central High School builds upon the longstanding partnership Davenport has enjoyed with GRPS.  This relationship provides College of Urban Education students with a unique opportunity to develop their skills and also will help enhance GRPS student outcomes and academic growth.

Eligible candidates for this program must already possess a bachelor’s degree and have passed the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification basic skills test and subject area competency exam. Candidates for the program do not need to be teachers already, nor do they need to have obtained an undergraduate degree in education. In-seat courses based out of Innovation Central High will be augmented by online courses. Upon successful completion of this program, candidates will be awarded a master’s degree and teacher certification in math, English or integrated science.

Northwestern Michigan College and DU announce partnership degree program

Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City and Davenport University  have formed a new transfer degree agreement that expands upon the long-time partnership the two institutions share. NMC students who earn an Associate of Science and Arts degree can transfer their credits to DU toward a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting Fraud Investigation.

According to the AICPA, forensic accounting is the fastest growing area of accounting today due to the greater financial security required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the widespread recognition of financial risk, and the additional growth that will occur with economic recovery. Students interested in the transfer degree would take 26 courses at NMC and transfer those credits to DU to take an additional 12 courses for a total of 120 credit hours. Classes begin Sept. 3 and will be offered at NMC’s University Center location in Traverse City.
