Secondary Education

Prepare for a Career in Education

Union Institute & University’s Secondary Education major prepares you to educate diverse classrooms of students in grades six through 12. At Union we know teaching adolescents is one of the most rewarding and challenging careers, that’s why our distance learning format is designed to fit your busy schedule so you can advance your education without interrupting your life.
Union has tailored our Secondary Education program for individuals seeking to teach in the state of Florida, though students residing in other states may enroll (with the complexity of teaching licensure in other states, contact our Admissions Team to find out if our program can help your teaching licensure since not all states can guarantee eligibility). While the program is not currently structured to grant certification, it provides a vibrant and thorough educational foundation for students who wish to apply for certification in their state.
