You'll attend courses and field experiences with a specific group, earning your degrees together in a professional learning community. Extraordinarily noncompetitive, cohort-based learning ensures that the learning of each individual will assist the learning of all others in the group.

This model is based on the principles of constructivism and reflective practice, which foster cooperative learning and are consistent with research findings on successful professional growth practices. In addition, the programs include a focus on literacy a d special needs of all learners while embedding practicum experiences across all terms of study. Candidates and professors alike benefit from this positive and dynamic experience.
