Wilkes University

Teacher Education

Students who wish to prepare for a teaching career in secondary schools select an appropriate disciplinary major (Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences, English, History, Mathematics, Political Science, or Spanish) and use their elective credits to pursue the minor in Secondary Education and meet teacher certification requirements. Students who wish to prepare for a teaching career in elementary or middle level education pursue the major in Elementary and Early Childhood Education or Middle Level Education (with an appropriate area of concentration). A list of the courses needed for certification is provided in the departmental description of the Department of Education in this bulletin. Students planning a teaching career must seek counseling in the Department of Education early in their first semester at Wilkes University.
