V. Subject Matter Areas of Concentration
Students completing a double major in Elementary and Middle Level Education must take coursework in two content areas in addition to the Elementary and Middle Level major programs of study. These programs must be planned carefully between the student and the advisor in both programs of study to ensure that the requirements for teaching in the subject areas have been met. Examples of content areas include but are not limited to: English, mathematics, science, social studies, health, and technology education.
These requirements may be impacted by changes at the federal and state level.
Middle level advisers have lists of courses that may be recommended or required in certain areas.
In this combined major program, courses in Middle Level Education fulfill elective requirements in Elementary Education.
