Secondary Education (B.A.)

Overview

Students learning to teach Spanish

Teaching is a highly demanding, multifaceted, complex, and rewarding profession—and so is our secondary education teacher preparation program. We look for students who possess a strong academic background, a desire to deepen their academic knowledge, and a strong commitment to the intellectual, social, and emotional well being of all children.

The URI program in secondary education is a fully-accredited certification program that prepares students to work in both high schools and middle schools (grades 7–12).

  • Secondary certification programs are offered in biology, chemistry, general science, physics, English, modern languages, social studies, history, and math.
  • Students in the secondary education program take a sequence of professional courses in addition to courses in their academic content area.
  • Successful completion of the program leads to a B.A. degree, a double major in secondary education and in an academic content area, and an initial teaching certificate for grades 7-12 in the certification content area.
  • In addition to earning a dual degree, you will also have the opportunity to pursue a Middle Level or ESL endorsement.
