Inclusive Adolescence Education

The Dual Certification/Dual Major Advantage

We believe all teachers should be equipped to teach all children, so as an undergraduate education candidate, you will work toward dual certification in general education and special education.

Our dual major requirement means that you will also earn a content-area major that is in every way identical to the content major of a non-education student. In other words, if you major in Inclusive Education and English, you willl graduate with the same English degree that non-education majors earn, leaving your career choices wide open.

Inclusive Adolescence Education Overview

The Inclusive Adolescence Education degree program is a dual certification program comprised of the Inclusive Adolescence Education major and a content area major.

The program results in certification in Adolescence Education (grades 7–12) in the chosen content area with Middle School Extension (grades 5–6) and Students with Disabilities (grades 7–12) Generalist.

At the completion of the Inclusive Adolescence Education program, you will be prepared to teach in one of the following disciplines at the middle and adolescence levels (grades 5–12):

  • American Studies
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • English
  • French
  • History
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Spanish

You'll also earn certification to teach students with disabilities in grades 7–12 as a Generalist. (A Generalist is certified for employment as a supporting teacher for students with disabilities in content areas other than the your major area of study.)
