Secondary Education

In addition to the Teacher Education Program, which will prepare you as a teacher, you’ll specialize in teaching one or more subject areas at a secondary level.

After you’ve completed Level 1 coursework and been formally admitted to the Teacher Education Program, you’ll pursue certification in secondary education. As a secondary education candidate, you will:

  • Complete Level 2 and 3 coursework and clinical experiences for the Teacher Education Program.
  • Complete coursework in a major and a minor.
  • Pursue any additional minors or endorsements.
