Licensure plus Masters
In 1992, a program designed especially for bachelor's-degree holders wishing to earn a M.Ed. degree and advanced-level licensure was made available to prospective elementary, middle grades, and secondary school teachers of English, social studies, or mathematics, as well as to prospective K-12 teachers of physical education. Each of these three I-plus-Masters programs is made up of three stages:
- general education and methods courses,
- the internship semester, and
- remaining courses to complete the graduate major.
The area coordinator for the I-plus-Masters programs works with the Dean and the discipline area coordinators to formulate individualized plans of study for students in the programs; these individualized plans may require prerequisite course work. The I-plus-Masters area coordinator also acts as advisor for this group of students.
