This 45-credit program, which can be completed in eight quarters, uses a cohort model beginning each Autumn Quarter. The course requirements include seven 5-credit courses and six 1-credit elective courses, which are taken sequentially. The program begins with an Orientation course and concludes with a Practicum that provides students practical, on-the-job experience, applying what they have learned in the program with real teachers, learners, and administrators.
Each course is team-taught by a full-time SPU faculty member and an experienced practitioner in the field. Courses are delivered asynchronously using a project-based learning model with weekly synchronous interactions between instructors and students. A strong emphasis is placed on using only open educational resources (OERs) for course content. Open access and free tools are used where possible. As a digital program, the use of paper is kept to a minimum.
The cohort model program includes a total of 6 elective credits that are built into the course requirements each quarter. Electives are offered through the Center for Professional Education and can be tailored to the student's interests.

A student may be granted a leave of absence for up to four quarters by the program chair. Once the leave of absence has expired, the student will either enroll in graduate coursework or be dropped from the program.
