College of Arts and Sciences

The Bachelor of Arts or Science degree with a major in secondary education prepares students to teach in grades 9–12 in a specific certification area, and K-12 for foreign languages. The certification areas offered are biology, business, chemistry, english, french (K-12), mathematics, physics, Spanish (K-12), history, and political science. Every student pursuing the secondary education major also majors in the certification area of the student’s choice, except for business. The student’s degree, either a B.A. or a B.S., is determined by the certification area, which is listed as their primary major. Students whose primary major is in math, chemistry, biology, or physics will earn a B.S. degree. Students whose primary major is in english, spanish, french, history or political science will earn a B.A. degree. Secondary education students will have an education advisor, as well as an advisor in their chosen certification area.

For a complete list of courses that meet Rockhurst Core requirements, please see The Core Curriculum .
