Secondary Education Class Schedule

“We are committed to the act of teaching as being one of social activism and promotion of social justice.”
—SED Mission Statement

SED Credential Program Calendar

The Secondary Education Program begins in the middle of August with a week-long intensive format for the course: SED 715 Multicultural Issues in Education. We identify this course as our capstone course which serves to create and foster the SED community for the academic year. The remainder of the courses are offered in the regular semester schedule. Please see the Schedule of Classes for more information.

During the Fall semester, you will be evaluated by your mentor teacher, supervisor, and both discipline-specific and education faculty in terms of you academic abilities and suitability for joining the teaching profession.

During Spring semester, from January through June, all credential candidates are expected to be at their student teaching school site the entire school day. All academic coursework is offered in the evenings. Credential candidates follow the school districts’ vacation schedule during spring semester. Many candidates find it difficult to hold part-time jobs or take substantial additional course work during full-time teacher apprenticeship. SED candidates must maintain a “B” average to remain in the program.

Please see the SED Handbook for more information.
