When are classes?

Our program is arranged in a cohort structure with a new group of students admitted each fall semester. Each cohort meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters. 

Many courses embrace a hybrid format with online and face-to-face meetings alternating over the course of a semester.

Summer terms call for concentrated meeting periods to allow educators to include vacation time in their calendars.

What are the admission requirements?
  • Bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university.
  • GPA of 3.2 or greater on a 4.0 for your master's work.
  • Minimum GRE of 150 on verbal reasoning and 141 on quantitative reasoning within the last five years. (Or equivalent on the old scoring scale)
  • Minimum GRE score of 4 on analytical writing exam within the last five years
  • Two years of experience as a teacher or administrator (with teaching experience) in a public, private or higher education setting
  • Interview session with program faculty
