University of Northern Iowa's Middle Level Education program prepares teachers who are able to design instruction for young adolescents in grades five through eight, enjoy an ever-changing group of students and school settings, and provide leadership in best programs and practices. 


Key Features

A division of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, the middle level education program increases job prospects for graduates who learn to teach, work with and understand the characteristics of young adolescents. Since 1938, UNI has provided Iowa with thousands of teachers specifically educated to teach young adolescents.

This dual major in Middle Level Education offers University of Northern Iowa students a large amount of marketability/flexibility for a small number of additional credits. The program adds an extra nine credit hours (four classes) to elementary programs, and 15 credit hours for secondary.

Students must choose at least two specialty areas (can also do three or four) from math, science, social studies and reading. Each specialty area requires 12 credit hours, but most, if not all, of those areas duel count with classes you have already taken.
