Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Secondary Education has collaborated with the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Agriculture to create a program that fuses educational pedagogy and content area knowledge.  As a result of this partnership, graduates will earn a concurrent major in their content area from the College of Arts and Sciences as well as a degree in content-specific secondary education.  All of our undergraduate programs lead to an initial certification as a "highly qualified" teacher.  Click on the program link below to find more information and a contact person for the field of your interest.
