Learn more about courses and curriculum

If you are interested in teaching at the elementary level (Pre-K to sixth grade), you should follow a course of study that is multidisciplinary since you will teach many subjects. If you are interested in teaching at the secondary (middle or high school) level, you will want to follow a course of study that reflects the primary area you wish to teach (e.g., math, social science, science, health/PE, language arts, etc.).
