Course Sequence

Though the course sequence is relatively stable there are circumstances that require students to take these courses out of the recommended sequence. In addition, continual program development and changes in national and state training standards may result in changes in curriculum or course sequence. Many of the courses require considerable field experience and service reflective of training in the field so students need to plan their schedules accordingly.; Key assessments will be assigned to specific classes via rubrics that professors will use to evaluate student skill attainment.
