Secondary Education Minor

The secondary education minor prepares students majoring in an arts and sciences discipline for initial licensure as high school teachers. Licensure through the secondary education minor is available in these disciplines:

Students who seek a license to teach at the high school level must enroll in a BA or BS degree program in the College of Arts and Sciences and major in their chosen subject area. They may then pursue licensure through the secondary education minor after meeting certain preliminary requirements for the licensure track. Further information about those requirements can be found under “Licensure Program Requirements” in the School of Education.

Note: Options for secondary licensure in visual arts, health, physical education, and Spanish are available within the departments of art + design, sport and movement science, and world languages and cultures.

Secondary education minors must satisfy all the requirements and standards under Admissions to Licensure Programs.
