Both programs are full-time, beginning in June 2012 and concluding in the summer of the following year.

Graduates of the program will receive a master?s degree, an Oregon initial 1 teaching license to teach in middle and high schools, and endorsements to teach in math or science. Applications will be accepted through April 20 for the 2012-2013 cohort. Applications for the 2013-2014 programs will be available later this year.
