Secondary Education Minor (Non-Licensure)

The Secondary Education Minor will be of interest to candidates who wish to work with secondary aged children outside the classroom (for example, recreation programs, travel, summer camps, enrichment programs) or work with learners of all ages in corporate or other training/education programs. It provides necessary knowledge, skills and applications in real school settings to develop candidates’ understanding of the principles of teaching and learning in middle and high schools. The minor provides an option that assists degree-seeking candidates pursuing licensure to complete their baccalaureate and teacher licensure requirements in four years. To emphasize the application of knowledge in the field as required in new performance standards for teachers, the minor features 120 field experience hours. The third field experience (which is normally connected to the content methods courses), is not required in the minor, but may be a required co-requisite for the methods course. Candidates seeking licensure need to complete additional requirements including formal admission to the Teacher Education Program and student teaching. The minor does not include all courses required for teacher licensure.
