Secondary Education

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in secondary education is a program designed for students with an interest in teaching middle school or high school students (grades 9-12).

Teachers at the middle and high school levels are not only required to teach in their subject area, but also to guide their students through a difficult time of life — preparing them to get a college education or to enter the job market.

    Middle School Endorsement

    Secondary education majors can complete the necessary requirements to receive a Middle School Endorsement, qualifying them to teach grades 6–8 in the same concentration as their major (e.g., math, english, social science/history or science).
