Teacher candidates can choose from the following program content areas: Biology, Chemistry, English (Literature or Writing focus), Mathematics, or Social Studies (History or Political Science focus). Teacher candidates choosing to stay for one extra semester (or two in the case of Biology) can earn a dual major in both Secondary Education and in their discipline areas (e.g., Secondary Education in Mathematics AND in Applied Mathematics).
