Summer Institutes for Teachers

This summer, you can enroll in courses that will build your knowledge in content area and improve your instructional skills.

Molloy College Summer Institutes may be taken for graduate credit or on a non-credit basis for in-service credit. All of the Summer Institutes are offered in an intensive, one-week format at either our Rockville Centre Campus or at our Suffolk Center on the grounds of Republic Airport in East Farmingdale.

These graduate courses are part of our graduate education master's degree program at Molloy. The summer schedule is just a more intensive schedule than our fall or spring semester schedule of classes. The courses are all part of our graduate course offerings in the Division of Education and can be used as an elective towards our Master of Science degree in Education. The online courses are all listed with the course code, EDU 5900. Each course is a 3-credit graduate course and is approved as such by the New York State Department of Education.

The general course description can be found on our website at: Since this is a special topics course, the specific
course descriptions differ depending upon the topic. The description of the EDU 5900 (formerly EDU 524) courses offered can be found under the topic areas below..

The tuition is discounted to $900 per course for teachers who already have a master's degree and are enrolled in a Molloy master's degree.  Students taking the courses as part of the master's degree must pay the regular rate of tuition.

The Summer Institutes are generally offered during the months of July and August. The course descriptions, schedule of classes and tuition rates are generally available by late winter/early spring each year.

CTLE Credit
Each 3-credit graduate course is approved for 45 hours of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE). Click here for further information on the new CTLE requirements.

Molloy College and the National Grid Foundation continue an innovative institute  that was founded in 2011: The Molloy College: National Grid Foundation Teaching Green Institute (TGI). TGI is designed to train middle school and high school teachers in environmental issues and to provide suggestions on incorporating environmentally focused curricula into their classrooms.

The Institutes will be offered July 1, 2, 3 and 5, 2019, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. each day at Molloy's Suffolk Center campus in East Farmingdale.
