Because you are earning a master's degree as a student in this program, you also need to apply to and get accepted by the School of Graduate Studies. Technically, you are their student doing a CEHS program. For example, when you complete the degree requirements and go to the commencement ceremony, you will sit with and march with the School of Graduate Studies, not the College of Education & Human Services.
As a graduate degree seeking student in this program, you will have a faculty advisor and a formal master's degree program of study form as well as a licensure advisor in our college's Student Services office.
You are doing two things at once - working on a master's degree and completing a state approved teacher preparation program. For the most part, these will be one in the same, but there are a couple things you do just for the degree (like an inquiry project) and a couple things just for the license (like Praxis exams).
The School of Graduate Studies will require a 2.7 overall GPA to consider you a degree-seeking student. If you have less than a 2.7, you should consult with the graduate school about completing an admissions petition to be conditionally admitted.
Use the special program codes we provide on our "basic handout" on your degree application to the graduate school.
If you are not a native student and need to compete prerequisite content and/or education courses on the undergraduate level, do not apply to the graduate school! Apply instead to the undergraduate admissions office and use the special program codes we have identified for you on our "basic handout".
This handout is available in our office in 378 Allyn, from any of the licensure advisors. The handout is also the first two pages of your program application and we ask you to sign a statement in our application that you have read the handout and have keep it for your reference.
