An educational strand is a series of clearly defined courses focused on a specific academic topic. These sequenced strands provide students an opportunity to expand their knowledge with courses not traditionally available within our Program’s general offerings. While the classes within each strand can be used within the master’s degree as electives, these courses do not lead to any Iowa endorsement.
