Summer Intensive Program
The summer intensive program is ideal for candidates who are ready to jump into a new career or for current teachers looking to develop new skills over the summer. Due to the intensive nature of the program, we do not recommend pursuing the summer program while also working.
The 2019 full-time summer intensive program will run from May 13 - August 12, 2019
- Online portion: May 13 - June 21 (6 weeks)
- On-site portion: July 8 - August 2 (4 weeks)
- Final reflection paper due August 12
During the online portion, the hours are flexible. Students will take courses using a highly interactive learning management system called Canvas. The online portion is semi-synchronous, which allows students to study and complete assignments on their own time, abiding by the set deadlines by the instructors. During the on-site portion, students will be attending classes on Teachers College campus from Monday through Friday, 9:30am - 5:00pm.
Application deadline for full-time summer intensive program is March 1, 2019.
