The requirements for each of the Bachelor of Arts in Education degrees are identical to the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Education  degrees in each of the fields with the exception that for the B.A., students must successfully complete two courses in the same foreign language.

Student Teaching in Secondary Education Program:

Applications for student teaching must be filed the semester preceding the student teaching semester. Approval for a student teaching placement is contingent upon:

  1. Admission to T&L.
  2. Completion of at least 90 credits toward a bachelor’s degree in secondary education with a grade point average of 2.75 or higher.
  3. Completion of all professional education course requirements, with a grade point average of 2.75 or higher.
  4. Completion of 75 percent of teaching field course work in which the student plans to student teach, with a grade point average of 2.75 or higher. The grade point average of 2.75 in the teaching field must be maintained through graduation.
  5. Filing of a completed T&L student teaching application by the announced deadline.
  6. Recommendation of the Department of Teaching & Learning.

Student teaching is a full-time, full-semester experience in a secondary classroom. It involves a mandatory, on-campus orientation; observation and supervised teaching, during which the student gradually assumes classroom teaching responsibilities; regularly scheduled observations and evaluations by the classroom teacher who serves as cooperating teacher and by the assigned university supervisor; and weekly student teaching seminar sessions. Because student teaching is a full-time responsibility, outside employment during that time is strongly discouraged, and the student may enroll in no courses other than EDSC 482 and EDSC 481, 483, or 485 without department approval.
