Program Description:

The curriculum leading to the Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.Ed. or B.S.Ed.) in Secondary Education is designed for students preparing to teach in middle schools, junior high schools or senior high schools (grades 7-12). The program of studies for the Secondary Education major and licensure preparation has three components:

  • General Education Requirements
  • Concentration-Teaching Field Requirements
  • Professional Education Requirements

Students must meet with a College of Education Academic Advisor for initial consultation about their program, and their secondary faculty advisor through out their program. The Secondary Education faculty advisor must approve enrollment into the professional licensure courses that are offered in a Fall/Spring sequence.

Career Opportunities:

 Middle school teachers and secondary school teachers help students delve more deeply into subjects introduced in elementary school and expose them to more information about the world. Middle and secondary school teachers specialize in a specific subject, such as English, Spanish, Mathematics, History, or Biology.  50 states and the District of Columbia require public school teachers to be licensed. In most states a prerequisite for licensure is a bachelor’s degree. Usually licensure is granted by the State Board of Education or a licensure advisory committee. Requirements for regular licenses to teach kindergarten through grade 12 vary by state.
