Purpose

During the first year of the program, students take two classes per semester, both on the same day of the week, generally Monday or Tuesday nights (6–10 p.m.). In the second year, students take two classes per semester on one night, while every other week a night is dedicated to PEP (Professional Enhancement Practicum) seminar. Content area methods classes will be offered during the summer sessions following each year. Students are required to take a total of Nine (9) credits (3 courses), which must be taken in the spring semester of the second year accompanied with any of the following combinations: both during the first summer semester, one during each of the two summer semesters, or both during the second summer semester.
