What to Expect
Whether you are interested in teaching pre-school children or would prefer to teach high school students, King’s education program provides extensive early field experiences so you can begin practicing the methods of teaching in the classroom as early as your sophomore year.
King’s offers four undergraduate education majors:
- Early Childhood Education
- Elementary Education (kindergarten through middle school)
- Secondary Education (middle school through high school)
- Special Education
In addition to teaching, opportunities are available to education majors in several areas, including:
- Special services (guidance counseling, library/information services or school psychology)
- Training and development
- Research and writing
If you are interested in teaching at the college level, administration or special services, you should plan on graduate study and possibly an Ed.D once you have some teaching experience. King’s offers a master’s degree in Reading and a graduate certificate in English as a Second Language (ESL).
