Online Program Preparing Teachers Through Experience

The initial license + master's in mild to moderate educational needs is a two-year, cohort-style program that begins in May each year. This program leads to graduates earning their intervention specialist license as well as an MAEd.

Classes for this program are offered online, but student teaching and field experiences will be completed in-person in districts close to their own community. While in the program, students will master research-based teaching strategies, in-depth content knowledge, assessment strategies along with data based decision making and classroom management practices. An integrative seminar supports the student's professional development as a teacher.

Program Features

  • Inquiry-based learning, research-based teaching, and technology integration are guiding principles of the program.
  • 24-month, full-time program starts in May, with MAEd and intervention specialist license completion at the end of the spring semester, two years later.
  • Online cohort model in which students have the opportunity to form close professional relationships with classmates and faculty through online coursework and field experiences.
  • Individualized mentoring by supervising faculty in the placement district.
  • Extensive field and clinical work in classrooms within the K-12 school setting.
