The Secondary Education program is designed for students who intend to teach a specific subject (such as English or history) at the high school level, or grades 7-12. Students in this age group are highly impressionable and at a point when their actions are beginning to have consequences on the rest of their lives. They need teachers to help direct their energies in positive directions. Their teachers need to be able to help them learn the valuable skills necessary for success after high school, either in vocational settings or for further education. A good high school teacher is able to teach the same skills in a variety of different ways in order to accommodate every style of learner.
The Secondary Education curriculum is designed for students who intend to transfer to a four-year bachelor's degree program, and provides a strong foundation in mathematics, science, language arts and social sciences. Students should work with their advisors to determine the subject area, and to select their courses based upon their specialization.
