Middle Level and High School Education
Candidates planning to teach at the middle or high school level must exhibit proficiency in at least one specific subject area, commonly referred to an endorsement. At Concordia University, you can choose from 13 endorsements: Art, Biology, Business, Business and Marketing, Chemistry, Health, Health and PE, Language Arts (English), Marketing, Mathematics (Advanced or Basic), Physical Education, and Social Studies.
A hallmark of Concordia University's Middle and High School education program includes professional coursework with a heavy emphasis on methodology and strategies to improve student learning. You will be well-prepared for your clinical experience, which begins with tutoring, followed by classroom experiences, culminating in teaching from prepared work samples in practicum and student teaching.
Students apply to the College of Education during their sophomore year, or if a transfer student, during their first semester on campus. To be admitted, you must maintain a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average, have received fingerprint clearance from TSPC, earned passing scores on the basic skills test (CBEST, WEST-B, or PPST), and receive a positive recommendation from the Education Faculty Admission Review Committee.
