Students majoring in Secondary Education at Concordia will develop the skills and insights to become effective middle school or high school teachers and life-long learners. A variety of specialties are available that allow students to customize their major to the subject area in which they would like to teach.

Students have an opportunity to blend theory and practice through a series of content courses, methods courses, field experiences, and clinical practice.
