Secondary Education

Help students get on track for academic and professional success. Students enter middle school with the foundations in place to take on more intensive studies in math, science, social sciences, writing, languages, and the arts. At the same time, their minds and bodies are changing rapidly, affecting the ways they absorb, process, and retain information.

We can prepare you for a position as a professional classroom teacher, supervising teacher, or department chairperson in middle schools, junior high schools, and high schools.

We can help you develop the knowledge and skills to effectively teach adolescents and early adolescents during this critical period in their emotional, intellectual, and biological development. We place a strong emphasis on developing expert subject level knowledge and practical classroom experience.

We encourage all secondary education students to consider joining our Community of Teachers seminar. This community of undergraduate and graduate education students explores common issues in a seminar setting. As a participant, you'll also work with an experienced mentor teacher for additional field experiences.
