Professional Education Requirements

Professional education courses are designed to provide students the opportunity to engage with and apply theory- and research-based principles specific to the field of education. These courses include “non-authorized” courses, which may be taken at any point in a student’s academic career, including before certification into the School of Education; and “authorized” courses, which may be taken only after admission into the Teacher Education Programs. Admitted students begin authorized courses the semester following their admission to the Teacher Education Program. All authorized courses must be taken in prescribed blocks and must be successfully completed in sequence. Successful completion of all courses with a grade of C or better in a block is a prerequisite for the next set of courses and for student teaching.
