Curricula for Secondary Teachers (7-12)
Students who plan to teach in grades 7-12 will follow similar programs during the first two years. The electives
in all areas should be carefully chosen so that the student can complete professional and subject matter requirements
for graduation and licensure in the chosen subject matter teaching fields.
NOTE: Persons wishing to be non-licensure secondary subject majors should consult with an appropriate advisor
regarding the university's Bachelor in Arts/Bachelor of Science degree requirements.
