This includes placements in primary, secondary, and special needs settings during methods courses. The licensure requirements are fulfilled by student teaching internships at one primary and one secondary setting, supplemented by a seminar with other student teachers, for a total of 11 credit hours.

Completion of the Master’s requires that a student creates a capstone project in consultation with their advisor, this can either be a thesis or arts project done as an Independent Study and worth 4 credits.
