Program Completion Requirements:

Four internships are required for the Educational Leadership program. Three internships are taken concurrently with your first 3 full terms (fall, spring, fall) in your own school along with your cognate coursework.

The 4th, alternative site, internship will be taken alone at the end of your cognate course work at a site different from your own school. This final internship will be in conjunction with the Capstone Research Project (CRP) for those seeking the MA degree. The CRP is not required for those who want the principal license only.
