Secondary English, Language Arts, and Reading

The School of Education at Baylor offers a unique experience for Teacher Education majors. Unlike other programs, Baylor's School of Education offers seven semesters of hands-on experience in the classroom. The program builds upon the classroom knowledge and the students are given increasing responsibility each semester. By the students' senior year, they are teaching full time both fall and spring semester. Several schools in Waco partner with the Baylor School of Education to provide field experience for Teacher Education majors.

Students select a major in the area or subject they desire to teach upon graduation. Though many of the requirements are the same, students are able to take more classes within their focus and gain their classroom experience in their specified concentration. Available majors include:

  • Elementary Education
  • Middle Grades Science
  • Middle Grades Mathematics
  • Middle Grades Social Studies
  • Middle Grades English, Language Arts, and Reading
  • Secondary English, Language Arts, and Reading
  • Secondary Life Sciences
  • Secondary Mathematics
  • Secondary Social Studies
  • Secondary Physical Sciences
  • All Level Spanish

Students may also gain their teacher certification through Special Education (BSED), Music Education (BME), or Business for Secondary Education (BBA). Teacher Certification is also offered through Math, Biology, Family Sciences, and Human Development majors.

Internships are offered in Brisbane, Australia and in England. The internships are four to five weeks long and occur at the end of the fall semester. A summer study program is also offered in Costa Rica. Students live with a host family and work four days a week in a private bilingual school. In addition, the School of Education offers semester study abroad programs in England and at Hong Kong Baptist University.
