The University of Maine at Fort Kent Education Division’s Secondary Education program, offers an approved program of study leading to certification of high school teachers in the following endorsement areas: Mathematics, Life Sciences, Computer Technology, Social Studies, Modern and Classical Languages and English/Language Arts. Students who are interested in teaching high school in these areas will complete a Bachelor’s degree in their chosen endorsement area, along with the Secondary Education Core courses.
Students will meet with a program advisor to review the requirements of the degree program in which they are enrolled, as well as an education advisor to review their progress with the Secondary Education Core, to ensure their Plan of Study will meet the obligations of both programs. In some cases, completion of both program requirements might add additional semesters to their program.
