Education - FAQ

I am interested in teaching middle school or high school. What options are available to me?

If you do not hold a bachelor's degree . . .

Those who are interested in secondary education can complete an undergraduate education degree in one of the secondary fields offered (biology education, English education, math education, physical education, romance languages education, and social studies education) which leads to certification through Cameron or they can complete an undergraduate degree in the specific content area and seek alternative certification through the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Those who elect to become alternatively certified may choose to complete the M.Ed. in Education with a concentration in Teaching & Learning to gain valuable knowledge, skills, and dispositions that will help them succeed in the classroom.

If you already hold a bachelor's degree . . .

Those who hold a bachelor's degree can seek alternative certification through the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

Is it possible to complete an undergraduate education degree completely on nights and weekends?

Education courses are available in a variety of formats including nights, weekends, and online. Unfortunately at this time it is not possible to complete an entire degree in an alternative format.

I have professional experience working in schools. Can I use this to fulfill my field experiences?

Because the required field experiences correspond to course content, prior experience cannot be substituted.
