Proposal for an External Degree Program Master of Arts in Education (Concentration in Early Childhood and Special Education).
Byers, Libby; Halpern, Betty
This program was written by faculty at California State College, Sonoma, and is now in its second semester with 79 students enrolled. Admission requirements are a baccalaureate and a teaching position (paid or volunteer) with young children. Seminars are held in the local communities and coursework assignments are individually arranged to fulfill goals that are mutually determined by the classroom teacher and the college faculty. During the summer, students combine conference seminars with field observations of programs other than their own. The possibility of participating in a graduate program in their local community and keeping their jobs makes the program particularly attractive. Interim evaluations indicate that the strength of the program is in its modules of 11 students to each faculty member. (Author/JB)
