Program Completion Requirements
Students must have an overall GPA of 3.0 with a grade of “B” or better in 80% of their coursework in order to receive their Master’s Degree. The student is expected to maintain passing grades in classroom and fieldwork. Any student who fails two or more classes will be dismissed from the program. This includes the field practicum.
In order to complete the program, all students (with the exception of those approved for Advanced Standing) are required to complete sixty-four (64) credit hours of graduate study. Forty-eight (48) of these credit hours come from classroom course work; the remaining sixteen (16) credit hours come from field education courses.
Students are in a field practicum for 560 hours per academic year. Normally students are in the field 20 hours a week. In addition to spending 560 hours working in field placements, students participate in a 3 hour integrating seminar every other week. The seminars are small and provide an opportunity for discussion of field related issues that are not discussed in depth in other courses in the curriculum. In the advanced year, field placements are provided for students by concentration interests. Each student in a field practicum has a Field Advisor who is directly involved as a liaison to the field work placement; site visits at the student’s placement occur once each semester, and more frequently, if necessary.
If a student wishes to withdraw from the program, they would need to contact their Program Coordinator.
