The INSTEP Program in English Education can be completed by in-service teachers in three summers. Students accepted to the program form a cohort group that remains together throughout each summer, taking classes offered only to INSTEP students. Classes offered to INSTEP students are intensive courses that meet in July for a total of three consecutive weeks per summer. We begin with an orientation the Sunday following the July 4 holiday, and continue on until the last Friday of the month.
2014 dates are Sunday, July 6, to Friday, July 25.
2015 PROJECTED (unconfirmed) dates are Sunday, July 12, to Friday, July 31.
The professional Seminar is offered on-line to INSTEP students during their first spring semester together. Students also have the option of enrolling in an online course during fall and spring semesters to complete the one additional out-of-program credit requirement not covered in the summer sessions. A master's project is a final requirement of the program.
