A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college, with a major in Technology Education, is required. Applicants who do not qualify for regular admission can be recommended for conditional admission. They will be permitted to complete three specified courses and then continue to a final admission review.
This program is only available to students holding provisional or initial certification and seeking professional certification in Technology Education.
Degree Candidacy and Candidacy Assessment
The student is responsible to file for degree candidacy between 12 and 18 credit hours or during the term in which 18 credit hours will be completed. Hours over 18 are subject to forfeiture. A cumulative average of 3.0 or better and successful completion of the written Candidacy Assessment is required to qualify. Candidacy assessments are offered periodically, information is available from the department office.
Students must submit a formal plan for completing their elective credit entitled Directed Coursework Proposal, and have it approved by their advisor. This plan should be developed and returned on or before the Candidacy Assessment date, and before any directed coursework electives are selected. A registration block will be set at 21 credit hours until degree candidacy requirements are met.
There will be a culminating experience that will take written form, oral form, or both. The student will present a long-term portfolio development to the examining faculty and must apply for this assessment in the department office no later than the close of the “add period” in their last semester (about the second week of school). It will be offered the last week of the last semester of graduate study.
