Content Specializations

To prepare to teach in a middle school, candidates should have a minimum of two disciplines at the 5-9 level or combine a 5-9 field with another content specialization. A high school teacher must have at least one content specialization at the 5-Adult or 9-Adult level (the only exceptions to this rule are Art 5-Adult and Health 5-Adult which require a second specialization). Teacher candidates must complete EDUC 318, Content Area Reading, and special methods courses within their content specialization(s).
