Major Description:

A great teacher begins as a student who appreciates learning, values other people, and wants to serve in a worthy profession. Graduates with a degree in secondary education from Alderson Broaddus University find themselves well prepared for positions in K-12 educational settings. We encourage our students to choose a primary certification area and then broaden their background to include an additional endorsement.

You also have the option of choosing a minor in an area of interest to you, such as religion and philosophy, political science, history, computer science, and psychology. You have the flexibility to design unique courses to complement your minor.

Our students become reflective individuals who evaluate their actions and take responsibility for their own learning and growth. We foster sensitivity in our students so that they may better meet the professional and ethical responsibilities of teaching and effectively reach out to all the students they will encounter. Prepare to become a well-rounded teacher equipped with the tools to work for the constant improvement of education.
