You will work with your advisor to determine a Program of Studies – what classes to take and when you should take them, and when you should apply to the Teacher Education Program (TEP). While taking coursework, you will also work to complete Teacher Education Program admission requirements, including entry tests, and apply to the TEP the semester before you plan to begin field experience.
