Secondary Education

The secondary licensure program provides teacher education candidates broad field content knowledge and prepares them as teachers for grades 7-12. Secondary licensure candidates may choose from majors in English, History, Mathematics, Spanish, and Science (Biology or Geoscience). A minimum of 75 credit hours of general education and content area coursework must be completed with a minimum GPA of 2.80 before a candidate can apply for admission to the Center for Teacher Education secondary licensure program. Before a student may register for any upper level education courses, he/she must have been formally accepted into the Center for Teacher Education through a thorough application process.

Secondary education students must complete ENGL 111 and 112, PSYC 233, SPCH 102, and EDUC 211 with a grade of "B" or better and MATH 110 or higher with a grade of "C" or better prior to commencing the upper level education sequence of classes. General Education and degree courses may be taken concurrently with education courses until the final internship semester. All coursework must be completed prior to internship.
