This program provides innovative and contextual learning experiences through which graduate students are prepared to teach math, science, social studies or English at the middle-school level (grades 5-9). A major emphasis of the program is on collaborative efforts and work in middle schools. Successful completion of this program leads to endorsement for middle-level licensure. Two practicum experiences and a full-time, full-semester internship are required. For licensure recommendation in one or more of the core content areas, a student must possess a minimum of 18 credits in each area. A transcript analysis is required to determine whether previous content area course work fulfills these requirements; the Licensure Office or a designee will conduct the review. A student may need to take additional content courses in order to be recommended for licensure.
