The academic bachelor degree program, normally requiring three or four years for completion, will require five or six years respectively, when taken concurrently with the bachelor of education degree program. Teacher Candidates beginning ED 1 in 2018 will be required to complete 4 semesters of course work, including the minimum 80 days of classroom teaching experience.
