Bachelor Science in Middle Grades Education (BS)
Do you have a passion for a subject area that you’d like to share with adolescents?
The bachelor of science in middle grades education program at East Carolina University is a great way to combine these two aspects of your personality. Becoming a middle grades teacher allows you to gain expertise in two of your preferred areas of the curriculum (math, science, history, or English/language arts) and receive teacher licensure in grades 6-9.
As a student in the middle grades program, you will receive individualized attention from the expert faculty in the program as you work toward your degree. Throughout the program, your education will be offered through a blend of online and face-to-face settings. Your program culminates in a yearlong internship placement in a middle-grades classroom. In the first semester, you will spend one day a week in your placement getting to know the students, teaching lessons, and collaborating with the teacher. In the second semester, you will attend your internship every day and gradually pick up teaching responsibilities until you are teaching all day long. As a student intern, you will have the support of ECU faculty, the classroom teacher, and a university supervisor as you finish program requirements and prepare to enter the work force.
