New 8 Week Semester Format

AEP is proud to announce that beginning in the fall of 2012, it will be offering at least 10 sections of 8 week semester courses. This new format will provide greater flexibility for our graduate students who want to earn their degrees faster and more efficiently.

  • AEP 800: Utilization of Technology in Classrooms (Sections VA and VB)
  • AEP 855: Education Leadership (Section VA)
  • AEP 880: Cultural Diversity (Sections VA and VB)
  • EDL 852: Introduction to School Administration (Sections VA and VB)
  • ESOL 883: Assessment & Appraisal (Section VA)

The new flexible scheduling options give students a lot of opportunities to fit earning a degree into their lifestyle and personal situations (childbirth, coaching, sponsoring, etc…). Other courses in a similar accelerated format will be available in future semesters.
