Middle/Secondary Education, BS


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program Offerings

The Middle/Secondary Education Program is committed to preparing teachers and other professionals to work toward achieving our College’s core values and shared vision for education. We believe all our programs must prepare our candidates for schools and communities as they should be, not simply perpetuating them as they currently exist. The program is a comprehensive teacher education program that combines in-depth preparation in the academic content areas of English, mathematics, science (biology, chemistry, physics), social studies, special education, or foreign language (French, German, Spanish) with the professional teacher education skills necessary for success in educational contexts for undergraduates seeking licensure in grades 5-12 in these areas.

Indiana teacher licensure for music education is P-12. Pathways/minors are also available in Teachers of English Learners, Special Education-Mild Interventions, and Sport Coaching. Specific curriculum requirements for each content area are available at www.butler.edu/education.

Middle/Secondary Education Student Learning Outcomes

In addition to the COE College-level outcomes, students will:

  • apply knowledge of content specific pedagogy to engage K-12 students in inclusive, equitable, and just learning opportunities.

  • demonstrate the ability to skillfully plan for instruction, meaningfully assess learning, and use a variety of instructional methods to effectively teach diverse K-12 students.

  • cultivate a sense of belonging among the diverse families, community members and stakeholders of students in their classrooms.
