You may choose to attend our master's in teaching program either full time or part time.
You attend classes for seven consecutive terms, taking between six and nine credits each term. Field experience starts immediately and lasts for three. The final three terms include full-time student teaching and development of two work samples as required by the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission.
Part-time studies last approximately 10 terms. You can maintain work and family commitments by scheduling classes and field experience on a part-time basis. A full-time commitment is required for the final three terms to complete student teaching and develop two work samples as required by the Teachers Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC).
