Assuming sufficient resources, we plan to offer two (2) required core EDPP courses every semester. Students interested (but who have not yet completed their prerequisites to enable them to apply for acceptance in the Program) may take up to five designated courses prior to being formally accepted into the EDPP. Since many students are planning to be working/teaching while enrolled in the EDPP, all core courses will not begin prior to 4:15pm.
Option One (1): The entire program can be completed in 4 consecutive (fall, spring, summer, and fall) semesters. This option will begin Fall Semester, 2013. Students who have completed their prerequisites or have already been accepted into the program will be able to be seated in this first Option One Cohort 2013-4014. All students taking this option must be accepted into the EDPP. Exceptions will be made for those students who complete their prerequisites by the start of the third (summer) semester and have been accepted into the program.
Option Two (2): In the interest of providing students flexibility, students who need/wish to take the core courses at a slower pace will be able to take one class per semester. Students can take any and all of the core courses that are permitted without acceptance into the program.
