Secondary And Middle Education
The Master of Arts in Teaching, Middle Grades and Secondary program (grades 6-12) is an 11-month program for students who have completed a baccalaureate degree and who are seeking a teaching certificate in secondary and middle grades education. Applicants to this program should preferably have an undergraduate degree in a subject normally taught in Alaska secondary schools (e.g. English, social studies, mathematics, sciences, art, music) or be willing to take courses in that subject area to strengthen their content background. Contact Dr. Dave Marvel for more information. Placements for this program are made throughout Alaska. A total of 30 graduate credits are required. First round application deadline is March 1st. Late applications will be considered.
The six-week summer program is offered on the Juneau campus and prepares the intern to begin the teaching internship when the public schools begin. Fall and Spring courses are offered via e-Learning only.

Rural Alaska Experience
Students completing the internship or student teaching during spring semester are eligible to visit a rural community in Alaska and observe and teach in the community school. The School of Education will arrange a 7 to 10 day visit and cover the airfare costs associated with the travel.
