The Major in Middle Grades Education is designed for those students who plan to teach at the middle grades level (Grades 5–8). The major has four different content tracks for students to choose from: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science. Students are required to complete one content area endorsement, but may choose to complete additional endorsements if they so desire. Students should speak with their Education advisor for more information on the benefits and requirements of adding additional endorsements.
