Secondary Education

Future educators who seek to touch the lives of young people in grades 6 through 12 can pursue secondary education. SVSU’s program provides you the opportunity to enroll in TE 100, a supervised classroom field experience, before applying to the College of Education. As a teacher candidate in the secondary education program, (one of only 17 teacher education programs accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation), you'll devote 300 hours in the field with other candidates, students, teachers and administrators. You will be placed in urban, suburban and rural classrooms working with a range of middle and high school aged learners. With our low student-to-faculty ratio, diverse range of education majors, minors and specialized endorsements as well as opportunities to teach abroad, SVSU offers you the high quality training that prepares you to teach in any state or country. Your journey to a fulfilling teaching career starts when you apply to SVSU.
