*There are field experiences in these courses. Students should take only one of these courses per semester. Allow a two-hour block of time for scheduled field experience twice a week.
**ED 450 & 451 (Student Teaching and Seminar) may be taken only in the FALL semester of the senior year. ED 450 requires students' full-time participation and no other courses may be taken during this semester without the education advisors' approval. Students must have reliable transportation.

NOTE: It is imperative that students work closely with their advisors to meet all current certification requirements. All students are required to take six credits of English composition (or equivalent) and literature (or the equivalent) and two college level mathematics courses (or the equivalent) prior to being admitted to a certification program. See Section I of the Education Department Student Handbook for explanation of all certification requirements.
