The internship MUST begin in the fall semester and be completed in the spring semester. A Portfolio/concluding experience is required as part of the internship.
Based on satisfactory performance in the first semester internship, post-baccalaureate candidates with current certification may petition for exemption from the second semester internship. The decision to grant the petition will be made by the Director of Educator Preparation in collaboration with the intern, cooperating teacher, and UNH supervisor.
