The proposed program should consist of 45 credits or more, depending on the focus of study and the adviser’s recommendation. At least 24 quarter hours (20 hours in M.A. programs) must be core courses that support the area of specialization selected in consultation with the student’s graduate adviser. It is recommended that the program include no more than 3 courses below the 500 level. However, exceptions may be made for unusual program needs. Additional credits needed for completion of the degree shall be selected in harmony with the degree requirements specified in this bulletin. An individualized program must be approved by vote of the School of Education and Psychology and Graduate Council before it is implemented. Only individuals who hold current teaching certification may propose an individualized specialization MAT program. To avoid confusion with existing degree programs, the graduate student and his or her adviser must devise a unique name for the individualized degree specialization.
