Middle Level Education

Program Coordinator:  Steve Ward

The transitional years between childhood and adolescence are critical to a child’’s development. If you are interested in teaching students in grades 4-8 and are a caring, energetic, and creative person, the Middle Level Education major at the University of Central Arkansas can prepare you with the skills and experience you need to impact the lives of your students. Your degree will prepare you to enter graduate and professional programs, or begin your career as a middle level teacher with the ability to test up or down into other grades.

While we welcome any out of state candidates, completion of any program, other than an initial licensure program, may not lead to licensure or endorsement in Arkansas or in the state in which you reside. It is your responsibility to check with your state’s department of education to determine if the license or endorsement requirements are met through the program of study. If you are a potential out of state candidate, please contact the program coordinator directly.
