Early Adolescence/Adolescence – Undergraduate Program
(ages 10 through 21, typically grades 6 - 12)
The Mount Mary College curriculum is based on the human search for meaning. For those pursuing a teaching license, the sequence of courses identified for an Early Adolescence/Adolescence teaching major allows you to meet the following requirements:
- Mount Mary College Core Courses which introduce students to a broad base of knowledge from the liberal arts; Major Courses, which prepare students in an area of academic concentration; and General Studies, which present the breadth of knowledge and skills for teachers outlined by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
- Professional Education Courses, which prepare students to teach in their certification area and include fieldwork and student teaching
An advisor will help you select an appropriate combination of courses to meet these requirements.
Through this combination of courses in general education, in your chosen discipline and in the professional education sequence of courses, as well as through a variety of field experiences and student teaching you will prepare to assume the roles and responsibilities of a middle or high school teacher.
