The program begins each May, Summer session I, with coursework and extensive high school field experiences in Fall and Spring semesters. The program offers teacher education licensure in high school English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Program completers may earn both North Carolina teacher licensure in a secondary content area and a Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Education degree.
