Master of Education in Secondary Education (Leads to initial teacher licensure). This current and applicable degree program is designed for any individual interested in the education of children in the Grade 7–12 setting who is seeking a teaching certificate. Participants are responsible for contacting their state department of education for certification requirements and program approval. In addition, participants should consult the Grand Canyon University Catalog and academic advisor to obtain current information about teacher credentialing programs. Courses in this state and regionally accredited program are taught by experts in their respective fields who share knowledge and experience in areas of educational psychology, reading strategies, teaching methods, and curriculum development. Opportunities are provided to apply concepts, theories, and research throughout the program. Assignments within each course guide students through observational and practice based experiences. Participants must have access to a Grade 7–12 classroom to complete the program and practicum assignments. Assignments within many of the courses guide students through over 140 hours of observational experiences, and the final semester of the program includes a full-time, 16-week student teaching component. Participants must have a minimum of 24 units in a content area commonly taught in public Grade 7–12 schools to be admitted to the program.
