Teach students in middle school or high school.
To succeed in the classroom, secondary school teachers need a specific skill set that not
only prepares them to teach teen-aged students, but also equips them with a certain
level of expertise in their chosen subject, whether it is science, math, English, history,
art or other area.
This program provides the latest methods, strategies, tools and technologies used to
teach sixth- through twelfth-grade students. You will explore child development and
psychology and gain in-depth knowledge in the subject area that you want to teach. You
will also gain experience in the classroom with one semester of student teaching under
the supervision of a practicing teacher.
Teacher certification, a requirement for teaching in a public school, varies from state
to state. Upon completion of your coursework, you will be eligible to take the teacher
certification exam for the state in which you want to work.
