Notes

  • A grade of ā€œCā€ (2.0) or better required for major classes.
  • The summer semester is required for Professional Track only. 
  • Class starred with footnote1 may be completed earlier in academic program.  EDSC 304, 310, 320, 330, 340, and 410 are available fall, spring, summer, and intersession in Web and traditional formats.
  • Class with footnote2 is only required for Professional Track candidates.
  • Class with footnote3 may be substituted with successful passage of CSET Subtests I (133) & II (134).
  • Footnote 4:  CSET (www.cset.nesinc.com) Science Subtests -  two options for Physics Credential:
    • Physics Regular Credential (recommended):  #118 Subtest I General Science, #119 Subtest II General Science, and #123 Subtest III Concentration Physics
    • Physics Specialized Credential:   #123 Subtest III Concentration Physics and #127 Subtest IV Specialization Physics
  • This plan is intended to be a sample only. It should not replace early and frequent consultation with an advisor as requirements are subject to change.
