Middle School Education – Science
Have you considered becoming a middle school science teacher?
Take a look at Midway University’s Middle School Science Education program.
Midway University was founded as a teacher school and has a long history of training great teachers in our teacher education program.
Midway’s middle school education program prepares teachers to teach in grades 5-9. When you graduate you will meet the middle school teaching requirements for certification in Kentucky. Students wishing to seek certification in other states should contact that state’s teacher certification granting agency for information on specific requirements.
Each middle school teaching student must have one area of academic emphasis. You may be able to meet the requirements for a minor while at the same time, meeting the requirements for an area of emphasis.
Once students have met admissions requirements and are accepted into Midway University, they then will need to apply for acceptance into the Teacher Education program.
If you plan to teach outside the U.S. or don’t need teaching certification you may consider our Education Studies degree.
