The secondary education program builds on strong partnerships the College of Education and Human Development has created with school districts locally, statewide and internationally. This gives students the chance to combine academic work in a university environment with field-based work in a wide range of settings. Our students are prepared to teach and work in diverse educational situations. The curriculum allows an in-depth exploration of such topics as multiculturalism in the classroom, adolescent psychology and adapted instruction for students with disabilities. Students who are interested in teaching a particular subject, such as science, social studies or history, are able to tailor their coursework to their career goals. Areas of specialization include English, life/physical sciences, social studies, math, and world languages. A diverse range of student-teaching and internship opportunities ensures that our graduates are prepared to teach in a variety of classroom settings.
