Middle Level/Special Education
Education today revolves around inclusion and diversity. Classrooms are full of students with a wide range of needs, and a middle level teacher (grades 4-8) must be able to adapt and help children excel. In this dual major, you’ll learn classroom management and all the best practices of shaping preadolescent minds, as well as gain knowledge and skills about students with special needs and English Language Learners. The result? You’re a more effective and well-rounded (and also more employable) teacher.
Middle Level majors can study one of four concentration areas: English/Language Arts, Math, Science, or Social Studies. This degree prepares students for professional teacher certification in both middle level education (grades 4-8) and special education (PreK-grade 8).
