Note: Individuals completeing single subject MA licensure requirements will be able to take an additional course in Summer Session 1 in their final two months of UCTC. This is if and only if they have used all electives to work toward this requirement as well (requirement is 12 units in the subject area). 


Cohort Courses

The following courses are taken as a cohort: ED 421, ED 436, ED 425, ED 435, ED 495, and ED 621. ED 346 and electives are not scheduled as cohort courses or for you.



You may take electives in any courses you have interest or offer you additional opportunity for growth as a Catholic school teacher. For single subject teachers (middle and high school) you may take all or some in your single subject area in order to fulfill requirements for MA Professional Licensure (to be applied for after three years of teaching under your initial licensure).



All UCTC members receive both academic and professional licensure advising with specific UCTC advisers.
