Middle Level Education

| Bachelor of Arts |


The Middle Level Education program seeks to prepare teacher candidates to be effective classroom teachers of grades 5-8. Graduates of the program will be educators who embody the attitudes and skills of dedicated professionals and are committed to working with others to provide a quality education for young students. Middle level majors are involved in early and on-going experiences in exemplary classrooms and other settings, learning to work both independently and collaboratively to affect positive change in schools and society. The Education Division provides opportunities for future teachers to collaborate and exercise leadership in their careers
