This is a program designed to prepare both intermediate/secondary and technology education teachers. Students in the program will complete a number of courses that address the development of basic skills and competencies in a variety of technological areas and how to apply them through design and problem solving processes in a school classroom/laboratory setting. All students attend full-time and should graduate in four semesters.
This conjoint program is designed to provide students with an early field experience, a sequenced set of courses prior to a full semester internship and a range of courses after the internship designed so that students can reflect on their school experiences and make further connections between theory and practice.
