IDLA Program Pathways: ISU Dual Credit Education

The Dual Credit Education roadmap is a sequence of courses for students interested in working in the education field. Students progressing through this sequence of courses will learn about topics such as the historical background on the U.S. educational system, relationships between school, family, and the community, and developmental characteristics of learners at all grade levels. Students completing the full sequence will earn 10 university credits towards an Idaho State University education degree.

This course sequence is supported by a partnership between IDLA and Idaho State University. Courses are articulated for dual credit, enabling students to earn both high school and university credit through the same course. Information about course registration and use of Fast Forward funds available through the State Department of Education can be found on the Advanced Opportunities page.

Program Pathway:

  • Dual Credit Foundations of American Education (ISU)
  • Dual Credit Families, Communities, and Culture (ISU)
  • Dual Credit Development and Individual Differences (ISU)
  • Dual Credit Education Field Practicum (ISU)

If you are interested in pursing this pathway, work with your counselor or site coordinator to build the pathway into your course plan.
