Welcome to Secondary Education at the University of Delaware
We are committed to providing quality Secondary Education programs that prepare young people to become highly qualified professional teachers. In four years, undergraduates can earn a bachelor's degree in their content area and complete a set of pre-professional courses as well as field experience that prepares them to teach in grades 7 to 12.
Although our programs are diverse, they are unified by a commitment to serving our students, our community partners, our alumni, and, ultimately, secondary students in and around Delaware. All University of Delaware Secondary Education majors develop a thorough understanding of the material they will teach because our students complete a full academic major within their discipline (for example, in Mathematics, Biology, English or History Education) in addition to their teacher preparation coursework. After successfully completing the course of study students will be certified to teach at the middle- and high-school level.
A fully accredited program
The University of Delaware's Professional Education Unit is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). All of the teacher education programs have been recognized by their respective national specialty organization. Prepared with the knowledge and experience needed for today's schools, Delaware graduates are vigorously recruited by school districts throughout the region and nationally.
