The credentialing portion of the program begins in early August so that our students are in their student teaching placements on the first day of the public school year. Student teaching is year long and concludes in June. The sequence and format for student teaching varies by subject matter cohort, however all cohorts have a long term or primary placement and a short term or secondary placement. University classes and student teaching occur concurrently. The above sample schedule reflects only the coursework part of the program.
The Masters portion of the program takes place during two part-time quarters with classes scheduled at times that work for a teaching professional – typically in the evening or on Saturdays.
