The mission of the Department of Secondary Education is to develop quality secondary school teachers. We are committed to providing a program that reflects the complex contexts of the secondary classroom, and models a professional community where learning is interactive and dynamic. Our philosophy is to prepare educational leaders through a course of study that bases practice upon knowledge of current research in curriculum and instruction. We develop students as life-long learners, reflective practitioners and change agents who positively influence decision-making in schools and communities to improve the education of adolescents.
