Drama Education Network has partnered with Courses4Teachers at the University of the Pacific to offer 3 different courses, each worth 3 graduate-level college credits. These professional development credits count towards salary advancement and help fulfill the requirements for renewing a teaching credential. Teachers may take each course once (in any order). These are self-designed, independent study courses that teachers can take at any time from any location in the world. There are no classes (live or online) to attend. Teachers can earn these college credits by simply filling in a log totaling 45 hours of activities and work related to using any of our curriculum products or staff development services.

"This was the easiest 3 units of college credit I ever earned!
I was already using Drama Works! in my classroom anyways.
All I did was log my lesson planning and teaching time, plus a
conference workshop I attended with Mr. Basom. I did not
need to go to any classes and I was able to start when I wanted.
Registration and paperwork was quick and easy. Great deal!
