Secondary Teacher Education
Degree: Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science
This is an intense three-term program, structured so that you can participate in both academic and professional coursework while working in a secondary classroom. Your experiences within each term are complementary; the work in one school setting or in one course complements the work in another school setting or course. Your knowledge and confidence will grow in successive terms, as coursework and fieldwork build upon and expand what you have already learned. The undergraduate secondary teacher education program prepares you to teach in your teaching major and minor in grade 6 through 12 classrooms.
Students typically begin the program during their junior year.
With successful completion of the program, you'll be recommended to the State of Michigan for secondary teacher certification. If you elect to complete your teacher certification program as a student in the School of Education, you will also earn a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree in education.
Already have a bachelor's degree? If so, you can earn a second bachelor's degree and our recommendation to the state for teacher certification. Up to 94 credits from your previous bachelor's degree may be eligible for transfer, enabling you to complete the program in one and a half years.
