Middle School Education


Students seeking licensure in middle school education (grades 6-8 / IDSM) complete an Interdisciplinary Studies degree with concentrations in two of the following areas: mathematics, science, social science, or English. Courses taken to complete the 21-hour social science concentration must be selected from the following areas: history, geography, economics, or political science. The concentrations have specific requirements that reflect licensure requirements; students are advised to work closely with their faculty advisor when selecting courses for their concentrations. Also, ENGL 425  and EDSP 361  must be completed as part of the Interdisciplinary Core. Courses from the Core Curriculum (maximum of 9 hours in a specific concentration) are used to meet the 21-hour concentration requirement.

Core Curriculum Requirements (43-45 credits)


Students need to choose courses for the Core Curriculum in consultation with the academic advisor because 9 hours can be used from the Core Curriculum to supplement each concentration area; although these hours are not double counted, they are used to meet the 21-hour concentration requirement. Students are encouraged to include MATH 111 - Math Content for Teachers I  and MATH 112 - Math Content for Teachers II  in their Core Curriculum course work.
