Secondary Major & Certification

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Area: Majors and Minors

Secondary education majors have two advisors, one advisor for their content major and one advisor for their education major. Students are required to meet with their academic advisors in their content major department (e.g. English, Modern Languages, Math, or Sciences) to select appropriate courses for their content major and core requirements. Each teacher candidate will work with an advisor in the Education Department to develop an individualized program of study. Individualized programs of study include course sequencing, clinical experiences, and state testing requirements.For more information on the typical sequence of coursework and course requirements related to each licensure area, please see the Saint Anselm College Education Department website.  In planning a sequence of study, students should bear in mind that most content courses have prerequisites. 

In addition to core and content requirements, the following courses are required for double majors in secondary education: *PY 203 Adolescent Psychology (pre-or co-requisite for ED 322)

  • *ED 240 - Principles of Teaching and Learning with clinical (clinical)

  • ED 440-445 Methods of Teaching in content area specific to the major
  • ED 490 NHTCAP Capstone (2 credits)

*Note: In addition to meeting major requirements, courses with an asterisk also meet Saint Anselm College core requirements including Social Scientific or Writing Intensive requirements.

*Note: Students double-majoring in French or Spanish and Secondary Education are required to successfully complete a study abroad or immersion program for at least one semester (or equivalent summer program). The purpose is to develop linguistic competency and cultural appreciation. If a study abroad is not a viable option, an immersion experience in the target language is required. Information on study abroad opportunities and/or immersion programs is available in the Study Abroad Office.
