COURSEWORK

CourseworkThis table shows the expected progression of courses and field experiences for students in the ITP in Education Sciences. Individual progression may vary somewhat, especially for students initially admitted at the Advanced level. However, students will be expected to demonstrate satisfactory progress in the training program components in order to continue in the training program. An annual evaluation will be conducted in the spring semester for all ITP Fellows to determine eligibility for continued support.

A general list of courses that fulfill ITP requirements can be found here.
