Certificate in Educational Foundations: Secondary

UO undergraduates who are preparing for careers as middle or high school teachers major in the subject area they will teach.

The certificate in Educational Foundations: Secondary is designed to complement the subject area preparation of undergraduates planning to be middle or high school teachers.

Rather than waiting until graduate school to begin developing the knowledge necessary for classroom life, this certificate gives you a running start as an undergraduate.

This certificate program runs parallel to the educational foundations major for elementary education preparation.

This pre-professional certificate prepares highly competitive students for admission into graduate teacher education programs or other graduate programs in Oregon and around the country.
