Middle Level Degree Options

There are six degree tracks available, based on combinations of middle level core content areas.  Students must choose one track on which to focus their preparation toward an initial teaching license and completion of a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. Click on the name of the track to see specific course and degree requirements.  Upon completion of an initial license, students may add content areas by passing state approved standardized Praxis II exams.

For information about admission to the teacher education programs at UCA, visit The Office of Candidate Services and review the Admission Requirements.
