Yes, the MAT is offered in our Testing Center, 2nd floor of the Chavis University Student Center (910.521.6202), every Wednesday at 1:30 PM and 3:30 PM.. Cost is $80.00.
Yes; each application is reviewed on its own merit that could include past experiences.
Yes, but there are some noted (*) education courses that require prerequisite work for lateral entry candidates
Yes, for qualified persons that meet department and/or athletic needs. The value of such assistance is $3000 per semester or $6000 per year. Graduate assistants receive tuition remission for nine semester hours per semester, but must pay all university fees.
The program is designed to be student friendly so as to accomodate area physical educators, realizing that many of our students will indeed also have coaching duties. For example, any course offered in the summer will begin after teachers are dismissed for the summer and conclude before the July NC Coaches' Clinic and the start of summer practice. During each Fall and Spring semester, all EXER graduate courses will be offered at night on either Mon, Tues, Wed, and/or Thurs.
Yes; all required PED courses will be offered at least once in each calendar year (i.e., summer through summer). Also, any projected change in course scheduling will be mailed directly to the students as soon as decisions are made so that you can plan ahead based on personal and coaching responsibilities. However, to assume that you can, and will, get all courses exactly when you desire them and on exact day or days is unrealistic and impractical.
Yes, but only with approval by the Program Coordinator. A goal of the program is to work with the student within parameters of professional integrity as well as accreditation standards.
When taking EXER 599 Capstone Study, you will have a choice of writing a thesis or completing an Independent Project; also, the student will take either an oral or written comprehensive exit evaluation.
In order to complete graduation requirements, all graduate candidates must successfully complete a written comprehensive examination, which will be scheduled and administered through the Office of Graduate Studies. Comprehensive exams must be taken in the semester in which the graduate student completes his/her course work.
