The Thomas College Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education Program prepares students to teach youth in grades 7 – 12. Along with a diverse liberal arts background and academic specialization, students become familiar with teaching methods, learning styles, working with a diverse population of students, curriculum design and evaluation. A network of outstanding partner schools help provide extensive experiences in the field. The program also recognizes the need for tomorrow’s teachers to understand and use technology as a learning tool. Areas of academic specialization for Secondary teachers include: English, mathematics, life science, and social studies.
Graduates of this program must meet Maine’s Initial Teacher Certification Standards. Throughout their program of study, students will document and demonstrate their competency in meeting these standards and document their learning and professional growth through the development of a portfolio, which serves as a valuable self-marketing asset.
