To teach in a Kansas public school (grades 6-12), teachers must be certified by the State of Kansas upon completion of a four-year degree. Since secondary education is not a major at the baccalaureate level, students need to select a major and a pdfteaching minor from among those disciplines taught in high schools. Since admission to secondary education is competitive, completion of these courses alone does not guarantee admission. A minimum grade point average determined by the transfer institution and passage of a basic skills test are required for program admission. Students interested in secondary education as a four-year major are encouraged to complete an associate degree prior to transfer. These course recommendations are intended for students who are undecided about a transfer school or secondary (9th – 12th grade) content area of study. Students who have selected a transfer school should consult the catalog of that school for requirements appropriate to the first two years of study. College catalogs and transfer guides for many four-year colleges are available through Career Services.
