Advanced Standing


A student must complete the Foundation Curriculum with a 3.0 grade point average (grade of “B”) to enroll in advanced field practicum. All students are encouraged to communicate with an academic advisor and develop an educational plan in order to meet the academic requirements and complete the program in the prescribed timeframe.


Students must select a concentration and specialization for their advanced year of study. Students must take an advanced policy course, an advanced research course, and four methods courses in the same concentration. A methods course within the concentration must be taken each semester a student is in the field. In addition, a course specifically focusing on and requiring a measure of student competence with diversity content is required of every advanced student. The courses that satisfy this requirement will be designated on the class schedules available for each semester. These courses often fulfill other requirements as well.
