The program is designed to be course-based, but students with a strong interest in research could also consider a thesis option. The program provides teachers with opportunities to learn and share experiences with colleagues in courses that offer both theoretical grounding and practical application. The courses are sequenced to provide a balanced approach and to follow the developing interests of students.
