Master of Arts in Secondary Education with Initial Certification

The MA in Secondary Education provides candidates with the theoretical and pedagogical knowledge and skills needed for initial certification in Secondary Education (Grades 7-12) in one of five subject areas: English, Math, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or General Science), Social Studies/History, and World Language (French, German, Italian, Latin, or Spanish). Through a combination of foundational and subject-specific coursework, field experiences, and a culminating master's project, candidates earn both their initial certification and master's degree. Candidates can earn their master's degree and certification in Secondary Education through the post-baccalaureate master's degree program or through the Five-Year Integrated Bachelor and Master of Arts degree program.
