2022-2023 Graduate Catalog

Education: Secondary Education (M.A.)


This program provides innovative and contextual learning experiences through which graduate students can become prepared to teach Math, Science, Social Studies or English at the secondary level (Grades 7-12). A major emphasis of the program is understanding and engaging adolescent learners. Successful completion of this program leads to a recommendation for secondary teaching licensure. Two practicum experiences and a full-time, full-semester internship are required. For licensure recommendation, the equivalent of a major in one of the core content areas is needed. A transcript analysis is also required to determine whether previous content area coursework fulfills these requirements; the Licensure Office or a designee will conduct the review. The student may need to take additional content courses in order to be recommended for licensure.
