The Middle and Secondary Education (MSE) Program welcomes you to our offerings in Elementary-Middle Education K-5—5-8 and Secondary Education. The program in Elementary-Middle Education meets the needs of students planning to become elementary school teachers certified for both Elementary Education K-5 and Middle School 5-8. The Secondary Education program provides a major program in Secondary Education to students majoring in academic major programs that lead to K-12 teacher certification.
Successful completion of our Elementary-Middle Education program leads to the B. A. Degree in Elementary Education with a second major in an academic subject related to Middle School teaching. Successful graduates are eligible for certification by the State of New Jersey with an Elementary Education K-5 endorsement as well as the Middle School endorsement in their chosen area [Language Arts (English), Mathematics, Science, Social Studies (History) or World Languages (Spanish)].
Graduates successfully completing our K-12 teacher certification program are eligible for New Jersey certification in the subject area corresponding to their academic major.
We have strong working connections with the academic departments and programs at the University and with the public schools that serve our student interns. Our program follows the College of Education Spectrum Model.
Our faculty are here to teach and advise you as you work toward your twin goals of graduation and certification.
Best wishes in your education career.
