Overview

The Secondary Education program of University of Evansville provides candidates early and continuous clinical experiences in local school system classrooms. Education courses with internship components include opportunities for classroom observation and apprentice teaching. During the senior year a student teaching placement with a master teacher is the final clinical experience. The curriculum of the secondary education program requires the completion of at least 124 semester hours, including course work in general education, professional education, teaching majors, teaching minors, and electives.

Candidates wishing to teach grades 5-12 are, first and foremost, specialists in their respective disciplines; a future chemistry, biology/life science, physics, history, or mathematics teacher graduates with a degree in his or her respective content area, along with rigorous and stimulating education courses and school experiences. Secondary candidates are majors in their respective fields, and equally important are the set of courses and requirements in teacher preparation. In essence, secondary candidates are completing a dual major. Graduates not only find employment quickly, many go on to graduate schools in a variety of fields of study, further enhancing their knowledge and expertise in their chosen teaching fields.
