Undergraduate Degree Programs
The Middle Childhood Education program prepares teachers in grades 4 through 9 with concentrations in Math, Science, Social Studies and English/Language Arts. Students pursuing this licensure area are required to complete two of these concentration areas. This degree program includes one quarter of hands-on experience in a local school district. However, unlike our other bachelor's degree teacher preparation programs, the Middle Childhood Education program does not lead to eligibility for a teaching license upon the completion of the degree program. In addition, students must complete a 4-quarter master's degree program in order to be eligible for teacher licensure. Structured as a full-time, day-time master's degree program, this additional year provides the specialized coursework in education along with additional hands-on experience, including student teaching, in our local school districts.
