Our secondary education teacher licensure program prepares students for careers as teachers of single subjects in a middle or high school. We offer licensure tracks in art, English, mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics.
Students who wish to teach at the secondary level complete a major in the subject they wish to teach as well as a major in secondary education. Teaching tracks are available within the art, English, mathematics, physiology and health, sustainable living, and business majors and require from 40 to 60 credits of course work, which may be different than the number of credits required for other tracks in the same major.
The secondary education program is approved by the Iowa Department of Education. Graduates of this program may be licensed to teach in public or private schools in Iowa and be eligible for teaching credentials in other states.
