(6th - 12th grades)


High School teachers continue to be in demand as veteran teachers prepare for retirement. Teacher education programs for High School education degrees and licensure focus on comprehensive curriculum content and pedagogical practices to prepare future teachers for teaching any grade level 6th – 12th grades.

Cowley College works closely with universities to design the Associate of Arts degree options which meet their specific entrance requirements.

Those interested in earning licensure for teaching high school will focus on one area of study (math, biology, chemistry, physics, English, etc). Degree candidates will work with both the Education Department and the department for the area of focus to ensure transfer needs. For example: if the plan includes secondary biology, the student would work with both the science and education departments to complete required course work for transfer and/or licensure.

High demand areas in the field of education continue to be sciences, mathematics and an increasing demand for Family and Consumer Science teachers (which includes the teaching of such disciplines as culinary arts, textiles, child care and development, foods and nutrition, and interior design).

In addition to the course work required for the following degree programs, students should also complete EDU6211 Introduction to Teaching and EDU6212 Introduction to Teaching Field Experience to be admitted to the transfer school’s college of education or teacher college.
