Secondary Education and Teaching

Middle school and high school are the times when students really discover their passions and you — their future teacher — are the one who will help spark their excitement.

You will have many hands-on opportunities to work with this age group and you will create lesson plans and apply them in a classroom setting. The hands-on opportunities include, but are not limited to, working in youth programs on campus, field experiences, and the year-long teacher intern residency in area schools.

In the program, you complete your curriculum with a concentration. You can choose from:

  • Biology education
  • Business education
  • Chemistry education
  • Earth science education
  • English education
  • General science education
  • Mathematics education
  • Physics education
  • Social studies education
  • Speech education

Upon completion of the entire program, you will receive certification through the Louisiana Department of Education to teach Secondary Education. See Praxis Requirements for certification.
