Overview

Gordon College maintains a close relationship with the New England League of Middle Schools, and will prepare you to teach your subject—and your students—well. 

Why study the Middle School Education program from Gordon College?

Gordon goes for 100. Gordon's intensely hands-on approach is just one of the reasons that 100 percent of our graduates promptly secure teaching positions, if they wish. Even before your full-time student teaching in your senior year, you will spend well over 100 hours in classroom settings, connecting content and methods to real-life learning. Add in broad liberal arts exposure, a second major for content mastery, and a firm Christian foundation, and you will be holistically prepared to excel as an effective teacher.

What careers can I pursue with a middle school education major?

Because of Gordon’s strong emphasis on practical classroom experience, you will be highly qualified for an initial Massachusetts teaching license (and comparable license in all 50 states and U.S. territories), and for a wide range of teaching positions across the country and around the globe, including:

  • Public schools
