Middle Childhood Education


  Middle Childhood Education

The Middle Childhood teaching license is designed for grades 4-9. Students choose two concentration areas from reading and language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Upon completion of all program requirements, students are eligible for licensure in the selected subject areas, plus reading. In addition to content coursework and a substantial amount of field experiences, the program includes intensive pedagogy courses that prepare students to understand the unique social, physical, cognitive, and emotional needs of the young adolescent; these courses are taken as a cohort. Student teaching occurs during the final semester of the program.

While it is possible to complete the B.S.E. in middle childhood education in four years by taking 16-18 credits each semester, it is more probable that 4.5 years will be needed for certain combinations of concentrations.
