The Secondary Education program is based on a thorough preparation in the liberal arts and sciences, professional studies, and in specialty courses--all of which form a dynamic collaboration that combines theory and practice, content and skill. The program provides opportunities for the prospective teacher to become effective in the classroom, meeting the demands of a challenging and changing educational environment and satisfying state licensure requirements. The program is seen as a community where students and teachers apply theoretical concepts, practice strategies, and develop teaching approaches.
