What makes this program unique?
The schedule and the amount of practica are unique. Each summer core course meets during a two-week session. Throughout the following school year, graduate students participate in practica that are designed to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the core courses. This design of a core course followed by application of the course objectives not only allows teachers to use their own schools as laboratories, but it also provides opportunities to test theories against realities encountered in schools.

How long does it take to complete the program?
USF recommends that the programs be completed on a two- or three-year cycle. All four areas of emphasis are 33 credit hours.
