Middle Level Minors
Middle Level Minors can be added to the Elementary Education K-6 major. There are many reasons that you might want to do this.
One reason is that this will make you more marketable as you enter the teaching profession. This is especially true if you pursue a Middle Level Minor in Mathematics or Science because these areas are in high demand.
Another reason to pursue a Middle Level Minor is that some states (including Wisconsin) require a PK - grade 6 or a grade 1 - grade 8 license.
Middle Level Minors make it possible for a teaching candidate to be licensed to teach in grades 5-8 in the following areas:
- Communications Arts and Letters (5-8)
- Social Studies
