Marywood University's five-year program in the School of Education ultimately saves students time and expenses by offering more coursework, fieldwork, and experience in a shorter amount of time, with no GRE required to enroll. Students easily transition from the undergraduate phase of study to the graduate phase, given that they maintain the appropriate grade point average and stay on track with courses.
