II. Secondary Program

A College of Education advisor will meet with candidates to help determine possible content areas. If candidates have not met the requirements for a major as part of their degree, they must complete these courses in addition to the professional studies requirements of the ARC program. Candidates must pass the MTTC content area test to be certified to teach in that content area.

III. Secondary Courses

The College of Education creates the schedule of ARC courses offered each semester to ensure that accelerated certification candidates can complete the required course work in one year. Candidates do not create their own schedules.
