Adolescent & Young Adult Education
The Adolescent and Young Adult Education (ADED) program, formerly the Secondary Education Program, dates back to the early years of the university. Our faculty includes full-time college and adjunct faculty with recent 7-12 teaching experience. Our program prepares students for careers as educators for grades 7-12.

The Undergraduate program in ADED is fully accredited to provide teacher licensure in eight major academic areas: Earth Science, Integrated Language Arts, Integrated Mathematics, Integrated Science, Integrated Social Studies, Life Sciences, Life Science/Chemistry, and Physical Sciences.

The Graduate program in Curriculum & Instruction offers master's degrees (M.Ed. and M.A.) with emphases in Mathematics Education, English Language Arts Education, Science Education and Social Studies Education through which teachers may expand their pedagogical base, increase their instructional skills, and further develop their expertise in their subject area.

Master of Arts in Teaching degree (MAT) is also offered and provides initial certification/licensure to persons who already have a bachelor's degree in a certifiable subject area.

An Ed.S. and a Ph.D. degree program are also offered through the C&I Program. Depending on your interests, these advanced degrees may be for you.
