Graduates from the undergraduate Secondary Certification Program are prepared to be competent, caring and reflective educators who are certified to teach grades 6-12 in chosen content areas.

The program’s curriculum consists of academic study, professional preparation and field experience. This provides graduates with pedagogical and content-specific knowledge, readying them to work with diverse learners in the middle school and high school classroom. Throughout the program, undergraduates gain the experience they need to apply technology to the 21st century classroom.

With successful completion of the program, candidates earn both their bachelor’s degree from the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters and the College of Education, Health, and Human Services faculty’s recommendation for the Michigan Secondary Provisional Certificate with endorsements in their major and minor areas of teaching specialty.
