Candidates may select from  three concentrations of specialized study which include the Content Concentration (18 hours of instruction courses in the content area of science, mathematics, social studies and language arts), the Literacy Concentration (18 hours of coursework in reading and literacy instruction) or the STEM Concentration (18 hours of coursework in science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
