In August, prior to the senior year, all candidates seeking licensure participate in an early teaching experience on a full-time basis. This experience provides an opportunity for direct involvement in the opening of school when classroom routines and procedures are established. Candidates seeking licensure are expected to assume some teaching responsibilities.
Graduate summer admission
Candidates who satisfactorily complete all Senior Block courses including the practicum experience, and are eligible to enroll in the EDEP-670 Teaching Internship may gain provisional graduate admission for study in summer sessions prior to the completion of the teaching internship. Successful completion of all Senior Block courses is required before students are allowed to register for graduate level courses.
