Completing teaching certification requirements is not the same as “majoring in education.”
When you complete our program, you will have a strong background in teacher education and a major in any one of the departments on campus.
To become certified as a secondary school teacher, you must pursue a major with specific course requirements in the subject you plan to teach. You will work closely with your educational studies adviser to plan a program of study that meets the certification guidelines for your chosen discipline.
You should begin the certification program as early as possible, but may apply no later than November 1 of your sophomore year. You must reserve the spring term of your senior year for student teaching, two teaching seminars, and an advanced course on the diagnosis and remediation of reading problems.
We also offer a childhood/elementary teaching certification
program, as well as a master of arts in teaching (MAT)
