The Department of Secondary & Middle Grades Education focuses on the development of teachers for the middle (4-8) and secondary (6-12) grades in English/Language Arts, mathematics, reading[DH1] , the sciences, and the social studies. We also collaboratively offer endorsements in Gifted Education and Reading[DH2] . Our department includes faculty with academic expertise in curriculum and instruction, in the core areas of the school curriculum (English/Language Arts, mathematics, the sciences, and social studies), as well as foundational areas including educational psychology, educational research, instructional technology, and special education.

We are the home department for three initial certification programs: the B.S. in Middle Grades program[DH1]  and the Master of Arts in Teaching program.
