Bachelor of Science in Middle Level Education

This degree is designed for students who wish to teach in middle schools. The curriculum of the degree prepares the middle level educator to teach in two separate content areas. Each student will have a teacher preparation program in two areas: English/Language Arts, mathematics, science or social studies. Due to the complexity of this degree, its content areas, general education requirements, and lack of electives, students are urged to always receive prior approval from their advisers before enrolling in any course.
