Curriculum and Instruction, MEd - Concentration in Secondary Education Computer Science
Let us help you prepare for Praxis testing. We offer workshops throughout the year.
Computer science teaches students design, logical reasoning, and problem solving — all valuable well beyond the computer science classroom.
- EDRD 619: Literacy in the Content Areas (3 credits)
- SEED 522: Foundations of Secondary Education (3 credits)
- SEED 675: Research in Secondary Education (3 credits)
- SEED 796: Internship: Secondary Education Computer Science (6 credits) (Must register for 6 credits)
Select six credits from the following:
- EDCI 597: Special Topics in Education (1 - 6 credits)
Note: SEED offers special topics courses that are currently listed as distinct sections of EDCI 597; students must obtain program approval before registering for any of these courses.
Clinical experiences in public schools will be required throughout the program (a maximum of 15-30 clock hours per course or 45 clock hours per term). Arrangements will be made at the beginning of each term.
A 6-credit 16-week daytime internship is required for completion of the state-approved licensure program.
Two options are available to meet the needs of most individuals:
- Student teaching internship: A one-term daytime internship in the classroom of a mentor teacher. Teacher candidate assumes co teaching and independent teaching responsibilities.
- On-the-job internship: Available only to students who are employed as full-time provisionally licensed teachers and teaching in their endorsement area in an accredited middle or secondary school and want to complete a master's degree. In lieu of an internship, provisionally licensed teachers may choose to use their full-time teaching to satisfy the experience requirement for a full license; however, the 35-credit master's degree requires that 6 credits of approved coursework be substituted for the internship.
Total Credits: 35
