Middle School Education Program

Middle School Education Program

Students who plan to teach at the middle school level have a program designed especially to prepare them for teaching students in grades five through nine. This program is designed to meet national and state standards, including two teaching areas and a beneficial sequence of field experiences. The Bachelor of Science in Education degree, with a major in middle school-junior high school education, certifies graduates to teach language arts in grades five through nine and selected minors in grades pre-kindergarten through nine or five through nine.
