Fall Practicum runs August through October (10 weeks).
Fall Internship runs November through December. Internship continues in spring and summer.
Students must spend a minimum of 100 (40 direct service) clock hours in practicum and 600 (240 direct service) in internship in their field experiences during the August to June K-12 public school year. The schedule for accumulating the required 700 hours is typically completed in three full time days per week at the school site and/or arranged with both the field supervisor and the EDUC 766 and 705 instructors.
Examples of appropriate elective courses are listed below.
This list is not exhaustive. Courses may be taken elsewhere and transferred in. If you’d like to take an elective course not listed below, it must be considered at the graduate level at UNC-CH and you must get approval from your advisor in writing. Courses numbered 400 to 600 are combined graduate/undergraduate courses and are counted as graduate level credit hours. If you are unsure about a course, check with the Office of Student Affairs to verify that it is at the graduate level.
EDUC 689: Foundations of Special Education or another graduate level course in special education is highly recommended.
