Secondary Education Degree Program

(Grades 7 through 12)

If you want to teach grades 7 through 12, then a degree with certification in secondary education could be a great choice for you. Students preparing for a late middle school or high school teaching career combine a degree in their area of interest (math, science, life sciences, English language arts and reading, history, or speech communication) and then add a group of professional training courses in education. This allows you to delve deep in the area of study that interests you most, but also obtain the skills you need to be a successful classroom teacher.
