The curriculum consists of three semesters of coursework and field experiences (46 Hours), with a fourth semester consisting of a student teaching experience (12 hours). There is a specific curriculum rotation each fall, spring, and summer semester. The Statesville and Charlotte campuses meets on Monday and Wednesday evenings and the Boiling Springs campus meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. All classes begin at 4:00 p.m. The online program also operates in a cohort model. The rotation for the online program may vary slightly from the rotation of the face to face program.
Courses are scheduled as flexibly as possible to accommodate candidates’ work schedules.
All candidates must understand that during the student teaching semester they may not have other jobs—student teaching is their full-time responsibility.
