Teaching Majors & Minors

The McKay School of Education offers the following teaching majors: Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Physical Education Teaching/Coaching (K–12), and Special Education. The following teaching minors are offered: Dual-Language Immersion, Physical Education (K–12), and TESOL (K–12).

The McKay School of Education coordinates with other university colleges to provide many secondary education majors. Students planning to teach in secondary schools should declare their teaching major and seek advisement in the college advisement center responsible for their respective teaching major. Questions related to student teaching, internships, or licensing should be addressed to the Education Advisement Center, 350 MCKB. A secondary education major incorporates both a major and a professional education program leading to eligibility for teacher licensure. Please note that secondary education students graduate with a teaching degree in their major college: for example, students majoring in English teaching will graduate in the College of Humanities with a BA degree in English Teaching.
