"At Mansfield University, we develop leaders. We accomplish this by focusing on the four core values that have been our tradition since 1912: Character, Scholarship, Culture, and Service."
The secondary education curriculum prepares students for teaching grades 7 – 12. The secondary curriculum is the combined responsibility of the Education and Special Education Department and the appropriate content-area departments of the university. The program provides students with depth in subject matter, preparation in instructional methodology, and a variety of field experiences culminating in student teaching in the senior year. The program features dual preparation in the content of the subjects the student will teach and preparation in instructional planning and teaching.
Students in the secondary education programs learn how to communicate subject matter clearly and effectively to promote secondary students' learning. Mansfield University offers secondary education programs in the following curricular areas: Earth and Space Science, English, Mathematics, Spanish, Social Studies. Many secondary education majors pursue graduate studies after graduation.
Secondary education majors should meet with Dr. Nanci Werner-Burke, secondary education advisor.
