arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The term "integrated teacher preparation program" means a curriculum (a) that incorporates general education, a major, subject-matter preparation for teaching in elementary and/or secondary schools, professional preparation for teaching in elementary and/or secondary schools, and any other graduation requirements, and (b) in which students make progress concurrently toward a baccalaureate degree and a recommendation for a preliminary basic teaching credential, given satisfactory completion of the requirements for each. The components of an integrated teacher preparation program (i.e., general education, a major, subject-matter preparation for teaching in elementary and/or secondary schools, professional preparation for teaching in elementary and/or secondary schools, and any other graduation requirements) need not be mutually exclusive. An individual course within an integrated teacher preparation program may contribute to completion of more than one of these components.
