Transfer--Secondary and Elementary Education

These education programs satisfy lower-division requirements (first two years/general education) for a bachelor’s degree.

Since secondary education is not a major at the baccalaureate level, you will select a content area major and minor from disciplines taught in high school.

Professional Educator's Licensing (PEL) areas of study include: Agriculture, English, fine arts, foreign language, mathematics, physical education/health, science(s), social studies and special education. 

Courses in your major and minor should be selected in consultation with an advisor and the education program coordinator.
