Curriculum

This program is a 19-20-credit hour curriculum that consists of three "blocks" of course work. While it is not required that the courses within either Block I or Block II be completed concurrently, it is a general expectation that the course work listed for Block I be completed before Block II. All courses in Blocks I and II must, however, be completed before enrolling in the Block III Internship semester.

Please see the  K-State Course Catalog Teaching and Learning Graduate Certificate page for course work.

NOTE: If pursuing a K-12 program, Elementary Methods is offered only Spring semester.

There are additional course substitutions approved in Modern Languages associated with the M.A. program option in second language acquisition.

For more information, please contact Di Murphy, Licensure Officer at dim@k-state.edu, or call 785-532-5524.
