What You’ll Learn at RU

The Secondary Education programs in Biology, English/Language Arts, History, and Mathematics lead to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Each program is accredited by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission and leads to teaching certification in the state of Georgia.

Each program of study is developed from the program major with a strong integration of professional education studies emphasizing differentiated instruction and assessment as its approach to preparing secondary and P-12 teachers for today’s schools. A broad range of field experiences in area public school systems are found throughout each program. These experiences are designed to provide a real context where secondary and P-12 candidates learn how to work effectively with young adolescents and their diverse needs in classroom learning environments.

Each program of study has two major opportunities where candidates have in-depth classroom experiences. The Clinical Practice courses and Clinical Residency provide a rich opportunity where secondary and music education candidates are supervised by an experienced collaborating teacher from the public schools to guide their development as teachers. Each program is completed with a semester of Clinical Residency, a full time supervised experience in an area public school classroom.
