Secondary Education

The Secondary Education Program offers licensure programs at the undergraduate level. A student seeking licensure as a secondary education teacher (grades 7-12) must choose a teaching endorsement in Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies or World Languages (e.g., Spanish, French and German).

The curriculum leading to the B.A.Ed. or B.S.Ed. in Secondary Education is designed for students preparing to teach in middle schools, junior high schools, or senior high schools (grades 7-12). The program of studies for the Secondary Education major and licensure preparation has four components:

  • UNM and Secondary Education Core Requirements
  • Concentration-Teaching Field Requirements
  • Pre-professional courses
  • Professional Education Requirements

Students must meet with a College of Education Academic Advisor for an initial consultation about their program, and their secondary faculty advisor throughout their program. The Secondary Education faculty advisor must approve enrollment into the professional licensure courses that are offered in a Fall/Spring sequence.

Admission Information

Steps in the admission process for B.A.Ed. and B.S.Ed. degrees in Secondary Education can be found on the Department Web site. Admission is competitive as the Secondary Education Program cannot accept all who apply. Students will engage in a two-part admission process and can apply to be admitted to the program with 45-60 credit hours of courses, an appropriate grade point average and completion of the application. Admission to the professional sequence occurs prior to the last academic year. Students will complete an application to the secondary professional sequence.

Application Deadline

EDUC 362 and EDUC 462 require a field experience in a secondary school. In EDUC 362 (pre-student teaching), students are in the school every week assisting and teaching in one class (the same class) for the entire semester. Days and times vary depending on the schedule at the school. Students in EDUC 362 may begin their field experience at the beginning of the UNM semester. EDUC 462 requires full-time teaching and related educational responsibilities (all day, Monday-Friday) for one semester. A total of 12 credit hours are required for this experience, which includes EDUC 462 (9 credit hours) and EDUC 464 (3 credit hours). EDUC 462 (9 credit hours) begins at the start of the UNM semester and ends with the conclusion of the UNM Spring semester in May.

Students are required to consult an advisor in the College of Education Center for Student Success and a faculty advisor early in their college careers to ensure that they finish their program in a timely manner. See introductory information in the College of Education section of this Catalog regarding application for licensure following completion of all requirements for the B.A.Ed. or B.S.Ed. in Secondary Education.

NOTE: Changes in UNM/New Mexico curricular requirements or state education reform initiatives may require periodic revisions of the curriculum and admissions process.
