The Curriculum and Instruction Department provides four undergraduate teacher licensure programs and a minor in Bilingual/ESL Education.

The Early Childhood Education major is a dual early childhood program that results in Wisconsin teaching licensure is regular and special education for birth through third grade. See the program description and list of classes on page 133.
 
 

The Elementary (1-6) or Elementary/Middle (1-9) leads to licensure in the grades indicated. The programs include an elementary education major, and approved minor and a wide range of professional education courses. A module in preschool-kindergarten may only be added to an elementary or elementary/middle major (see below for more information). Special emphasis is placed on fieldwork in schools and developing the skills to work with children who may vary widely in background and educational need. A special methods course in the minor may be required.
 
 

Middle/Secondary Education prepares students to teach in middle or junior high schools and senior high schools. Academic major(s), minor(s), or broadfield areas are complemented by educational foundations coursework, methods courses, and field work which qualify students for middle/secondary teaching licensure. For Middle/Secondary Education majors to be certified in their minor as well as their major, they must have a methods course in the minor unless the major and minor are in a compatible area. A listing of compatible majors and minors is available in the Curriculum and Instruction Office.
 
 

The Bachelor of Science with an Elementary/Middle or Middle/Secondary Education major with a minor in bilingual-bicultural or ESL education is designed to provide instructional strategies and cultural understanding for undergraduate/graduate students. (see page 131)
 
 

In addition to the programs offered through the department, the department supports broad area majors in several fields. Broad area majors are as follows: (Education Licensure Programs are also available.)
 
 

Art Education: The major in art education is outlined under Art.
 
 

Business Education: Majors in business education are outlined under Business Education.
 
 

Driver Education: The program in driver education is outlined under Occupational & Environmental Safety & Health.

Middle-Level Licensure
 
 

To qualify for a license to teach at the middle level as well as in grades 1-6, students in the Elementary/Middle Emphasis must complete all the courses in an approved minor (see page 56) plus any additional licensure requirements for that minor. Special licensure requirements for certain minors include the following (refer to descriptions of the minors for details):
 
 

Bilingual/Bicultural Education minor: Complete bilingual student teaching or field study;

 Foreign Language minor: Complete a methods course and a four-week immersion experience;

 Health Education minor: Complete a health methods course;

 Library Media K-12 minor: Complete practicum coursework.
 
 

MIDDLE/SECONDARY EDUCATION (6-12)
 
 

Middle/Secondary Education programs prepare students to teach specific subjects in grades 6-12. Students in Middle/Secondary Education complete an Education major in one of the subjects from the list below, plus a minor of at least 22 units in any other subject:
 
 

Education Majors
 
 

Biology French Physical Science

 Chemistry Geography Physics

 Earth Science German Political Science

 Economics History Psychology

 English Mathematics Sociology

 Spanish

 Theatre
 
 

For descriptions of courses required in each major, look under that subject in this catalog.
 
 

A set of courses consisting of at least 12 units from each of two closely related subjects from the list above may be substituted for the minor. Consult an adviser in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to determine approved combinations.
 
 

Broadfield majors, which prepare students to teach a set of related subjects in grades 6-9, and selected subjects from the set in grades 10-12, are available in Science (choose from several emphasis areas - refer to specific sciences) and Social Studies (choose from several emphasis areas - refer to specific social sciences). Students who complete a secondary broadfield major select an emphasis subject within the broadfield, and they do not need to complete a minor. Secondary broadfield majors include the following:
 
 

Licensure Minors
 
 

Students who select a minor as well as a major from the list of Education majors may obtain a 6-12 teaching license in both the major and minor subjects. To do so may require taking an additional methods course, depending on how closely the two subjects are related. For example students seeking licensure in Computer Science must take SECNDED 428, Methods of Teaching Mathematics. Students seeking licensure in Philosophy must take SECNDED 430, Methods of Teaching Social Studies. Consult an adviser in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to determine whether a particular major-minor combination requires more than one methods course for licensure in both subjects.
 
 

Middle/Secondary level licensure may also be obtained in the following subjects by completing any of the following minors in conjunction with any education major from the list above:
 
 

ESL and Bilingual/Bicultural Education (Bilingual Education License)

 Coaching (Coaching Athletics License)

 Computer Science Education (Computer Science License)

 Health Education (Health License)

 Library Media K-12 (School Media Specialist Provisional License)

 Dance Secondary Education (Dance License)

 Philosophy Education
 
 

Some minors are licensable for grades 6-12 only in conjunction with specific majors. They are:
 
 

Journalism with and English Education major

 Speech with an English Education major

 Psychology only with another social science major (history, political science, sociology, economics, geography, or broadfield social studies)
 
 

Students seeking licensure to teach psychology, whether through a minor or a major, must select an Education major in another of the social sciences.

Note that middle-level (6-9) licensure may also be obtained in most of the subjects listed in this section by completing a minor in conjunction with an Elementary Education major.
 
 

Middle/Secondary school licensure options are also available in the Art Education, Business Education, Music Education, and Physical Education programs. Refer to descriptions of those programs in this catalog for details.
 
 

Licensure courses in 6-12 programs
 
 

In addition to major and minor requirements, students in middle/secondary programs complete coursework and field experiences that provide opportunities to synthesize and apply knowledge of subject matter in middle schools and high schools. A typical sequence of courses is as follows:
 
 

1. Psychology of the Exceptional Child (3 units)
 
 

2. Pre-Professional Block (9 units):

 (Prerequisites: G.P.A. of 2.75 or better and passing scores on at least two parts of the Pre-Professional Skills Test; refer to Educational Foundations for course descriptions)

 Observation and Participation-Secondary
 
 

3. Measurement and Evaluation in the Secondary School (3 units) (Prerequisite: Admission to Professional Education)

 (Refer to Educational Foundations for course description)
 
 

4. Methods Block (at least 11 units):

 (Prerequisite: Admission to Professional Education)

 Methods course(s) in the licensure subject(s)

 Developmental Reading in the secondary school

 Secondary Field Studies

 Directed Teaching-Alternate Experience
 
 

5. Directed Teaching in the major subject
 
 

Note: Students who do Directed Teaching in a high school must do Directed Teaching-Alternate Experience in a middle school, and vice versa.
 
 

Subject-Specific Licensure Requirements
 
 

In addition to the above licensure sequence, which is common to all middle/secondary programs, some subjects require additional coursework beyond the major in order to obtain licensure. Refer to the course descriptions in each department for details. Note that the Academic Advising Report (AR) lists the specific licensure requirements for only one subject. Students seeking licensure in more than one subject are responsible for all requirements listed under licensure in each of the subjects whether they appear on the AR or not. Refer to particular departments for details.
 
 

Important subject-specific licensure requirements include the following:
 
 

Social sciences majors (except Psychology) must complete coursework in economic cooperatives and environmental studies as specified for the major;
 
 

Science majors must complete coursework in environmental studies as specified;
 
 

English majors must complete coursework in literature for adolescents and literature by authors belonging to American minority groups as specified for the major;
