Overview

Teachers with a Middle Grades degree familiarize their students more advanced subjects, while also helping them navigate the trials of discovering and building their identities and “growing up.”  

Beyond acquiring theoretical knowledge about teaching middle level pupils, students with a degree in middle grade 4-8 will have an opportunity to apply what they learned in actual classrooms. In addition to participating every year in field work, the last year of the middle grade program requires students to work with a cooperating teacher at a local school district to complete the teaching internship for an entire year (pre-student teaching and student teaching).

Graduates of the program in Middle Grades 4-8 Education at the Saint Vincent College typically seek employment at elementary or middle schools. Candidates are also suited to apply for graduate school. Recent graduates have found employment in many of our partner school districts and agencies including Ligonier Valley, Greater Latrobe, Derry Area, Somerset, Franklin Regional, Penn-Trafford, Norwin, Jeannette, Dr. Robert Ketterer Charter School, Westmoreland Intermediate Unit and others.
