     The following sample eight-semester schedule four (4) years of courses illustrates a framework for completing an education certification program in four years.   Some students would rather take less credit hours per semester because they have a job, family or other situations/responsibilities that may require a lighter course load.  Some students like to start their first year with 12 credits instead of 15 or 16, to help them get adjusted to college life.

     Go to your prospective college/university school of education to see specific requirements and courses offered by that school.  These are just two of many possible areas of study (elementary and social studies in secondary). See Future Teachers for other areas of study or go to your college site/program of studies.
