School of Education Intensive Guidelines

The School of Education is excited to have you join us on Liberty University’s beautiful campus as you continue your education! All licensure candidates and doctoral students are required to complete three residential intensives, and your ability to successfully complete these courses is imperative for recommending you for licensure or to prepare you for your dissertation.

Note: Additional information (housing, transportation, etc.) is available at LUO Intensives.

Schedule and Formats

See ASIST for official intensive offerings. Not all intensives are offered every semester.

One-week intensives

  • Winter – End of December/Early January
  • Spring – Mid March
  • Summer – June and July

Weekend intensives

  • Three required weekends in the fall or spring semesters
    • Friday: 4:30pm–9pm
    • Saturday: 8:30am–5pm

Dress Code

Textbooks

  • All required textbooks will be available on MBS Direct.

Attendance

Attendance on all days is required for passing the intensive course. Because of the short amount of time have together, this policy is non-negotiable. Be sure to make travel arrangements early enough to allow for flight delays.

In-Class Assignments

During your time on-campus, several assignments will be due. These typically include:

  • A class presentation (either individual or group). This gives us the opportunity to see your teaching ability. Professional dress is expected for this presentation.
  • An In-class written (or typed) exam. This gives us the opportunity to see your original work.
  • A demonstration of technology (using PowerPoint while presenting or a typed essay).

Post-Class Assignments

Once the residential portion of your intensive is complete, the course will conclude with several post-class assignments. The syllabus and assignment directions will be available in BlackBoard. Not all winter intensives have post-class assignments.

Syllabi

The below syllabi are provided as samples in order to provide an idea of what the intensives may entail. These documents are subject to change. Please do not purchase textbooks or plan for assignments and due dates according to these samples. Once enrolled in an intensive, the official syllabus will be available within Blackboard by the semester start date. The official syllabus will contain information regarding textbooks, course schedule, assignments, due dates, and other expectations.
