The Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Leadership offers a variety of curricula leading to certification in teacher education.
Teacher candidates enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education or Elementary Education Inclusive programs prepare to teach General Education or Special Education students in grades 1-5. With a 12 credit hour add-on plan for Early Childhood, Elementary Education candidates may prepare to teach Kindergarten and Nursery School (PK) in addition to grades 1-5.
Secondary Education and Teaching majors earning the Bachelor of Science may opt for one of seven areas of education concentrations including Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, English, French, Social Studies, and Spanish. The Secondary Education and Teaching Inclusive program offers five education program concentrations that include Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, and Social Studies.
Secondary education majors may choose to select a secondary focus area and complete credit hours that apply toward a second teaching field. To be certified in a second teaching field that is a core academic area (biology, chemistry, earth science, English, French, mathematics, social studies, and Spanish) requires 30 credit hours or the Praxis content specialty area exam(s). To be certified in a second teaching field that is not a core academic area (computer science, journalism, and speech) requires 21 credit hours or the Praxis content specialty exam(s).
