Secondary Education


Secondary Education degrees prepare students to teach at the junior and senior high school levels (grades 6-12). Students choose one content area to concentrate in from English and Language Arts, History, Social Science, Biology, General Science and Mathematics.  Classes are offered face-to-face, online, and in a hybrid format (a combination of both online and face-to-face delivery methods). An Art Education program is also available, which includes a P-12 certification, and Instructional Technology offers a Traditional Masters as well as an Education Specialist degree. 

Traditional Masters
Class A teacher education programs are designed to help teachers more effectively serve the purposes defined for the same teaching field at the Class B level (provided such programs exist). The intent of the Class A program shall be to help the teacher develop higher levels of competence than is possible in the Class B program.

Alternative Masters
This program is designed for individuals who desire a master’s degree and a State of Alabama Class A teaching certificate and who have a bachelor’s degree in a non-education area.

Art Education (P-12)
The P-12 Art Education program helps prepare teacher candidates by guiding their passion for teaching visual art into a rewarding career as an art teacher in both elementary and secondary settings. The studio component of the program offers students a chance to concentrate on accumulating technical skills and promoting their own personal growth as artists.
