l. Meet the requirements for admission to the Teacher Education Program at ISU including: EDUC 200 1 cr. 2. Complete or take equivalent courses in: HE 200 2 cr. CESE 200 2 cr. HEC 200 2 cr. EDUC 323 3 cr. EDUC 333 3 cr. EDUC 343 3 cr.
Therefore, if a student enters a M.N.S. program with no equivalent coursework in education, the student must take these 16 additional credits in addition to 30 graduate credits in the discipline to receive the M.N.S. degree. This leaves 12-19 credits, including student teaching, to be completed to receive certification in Idaho. Candidates must complete a program of study in one, two, or three of the areas listed. The committee designing the program of study, in consultation with the student, should be comprised of members from each department involved plus a graduate faculty representative. Requirements include completion of a prescribed program of study of at least 30 credits at the graduate level approved by a departmental committee selected by the student in consultation with the student's major professor and approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research and satisfactory performance on final written and oral examinations. If the student's teaching background is considered to be dated or deficient, a pedagogical component approved by the committee may be included. Pedagogical credits are beyond the 30 hours minimum required in subject matter course work. Courses to be counted toward the degree must be g-designated 300-400 level courses or at the 600 level. At least 22 credits must be taken in residence.
