Bachelor of Science in Education - Secondary Education

Education (Secondary) Leading to Grades 6 - 12 Certification (Bachelor’s Degree Programs)

The secondary education curriculum leads to a bachelor’s degree in education and secondary school teaching certification in the major and minor areas listed below. Whereas this degree is granted by the College of Education, students also have the option of earning secondary school certification in conjunction with a bachelor’s degree from the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts or the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For information regarding these combined degree programs, see an advisor. No grade below 'C' may be used to meet requirements specific to secondary education, the major, the minor (including the planned minor), or professional education courses; a grade of 'C-minus' is not acceptable.

All students must complete the College Requirements, Level 2 Education Requirements, a major area of study, and a minor area of study as outlined below. Students who select one of the following majors are not required to select a minor: Business, Management, Marketing and Technology Comprehensive Major; Social Studies Comprehensive Major; and Visual Arts.
