SECONDARY & MIDDLE GRADES EDUCATION

Welcome to KSU's Department of Secondary & Middle Grades Education (SMGE) website! Our programs and courses focus on teachers for the middle (4-8) and secondary (6-12) grades. We are the home department for two initial certification programs: the B.S. in Middle Grades program and the Master of Arts in Teaching program. We also offer graduate programs (M.Ed., Ed.S., Ed.D). for those already certified and wishing to add to their knowledge and pedagogical expertise. For all of our degrees, we collaborate with other KSU departments related to each teaching field to develop our students as effective teachers.
