Our Bachelor of Science in Middle School Education is a great fit for anyone dedicated to improving the educational experiences of young people in grades 4-9, with a special commitment to teaching all children. Potential students looking to become teacher candidates in middle childhood education select two areas of concentration from the content areas of mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts. Students begin their degree by taking courses across campus in the content areas they have selected, and during their second year apply for the professional cohort. In their third and fourth years, they become teacher candidates and learn how to teach “the whole child,” which includes practices most appropriate for the overall development of middle school students.
