Choose from two tracks within the program. The Classroom Teaching track prepares you to teach, and you will graduate with your teaching license. With the Professional Studies track, you will develop the background to pursue non-teaching careers in education such as counseling, curricular development, educational leadership, educational publishing and more.
During your clinical practice, you'll intern in a classroom under the direction of a faculty member to tutor individual students, provide small group instruction, teach short lessons, and perform all the tasks normally associated with classroom teaching. During student teaching in the Secondary Education programme, you'll work in a classroom full time and under the mentorship of a professional teacher and carry all the responsibilities for classroom instruction and management.
