Update for Master's Level students
Program changes that impact the MSE in C&I core course offerings are being discussed. Instead of offering “one size fits all” courses, topic specific and certificate-based programs are being explored.
Currently, the proposed MSE-C&I Math Intervention master's program may substitute topic specific courses for the following core courses: Elem Ed 705 Curriculum Planning and Differentiating for Instruction and Elem Ed 716 Issues in PK-12 Education.
The MSE-C&I master's program in ESL/Bilingual Education may substitute Elem Ed 381 for Elem Ed 705.
