Secondary/K-12 Education

About the Program

The Education Department, in cooperation with other academic fields, offers several licensure programs to prepare for teaching in junior high or high school.  Some licensure fields include an elementary component as well.  These programs lead toward a B.S. degree in the discipline, including approximately thirty credits of professional education courses.  Students with an interest in Secondary/K-12 teaching may make formal application for admission during the last semester of their sophomore year.  There is a minimum cumulative GPA requirement of 2.8 from all colleges and universities attended, plus other requirements, including individual department GPA requirements.  Application forms can be obtained online or in the Education Department office located in the Individualized Learning Building.  Persons with previous degrees and/or current licensure interested in adding a licensure field or endorsement may request a transcript review at any time.

Career Opportunities

Graduates in Secondary 5-12 or K-12 licensure fields most often want to teach in a middle school or high school classroom.  They sometimes choose to apply for substitute teaching or parochial school teaching.  Other graduates  find satisfying positions working with children and families in community education and youth organizations.
