The UW-Madison secondary education master’s program includes a dual certification path for candidates pursuing the English, mathematics, science or social studies areas. In addition to working with students in the content area, you also learn to work with students learning English. All candidates will learn about this teaching field and have the opportunity to earn a teaching certification. To learn more, please contact ESL Program Coordinator, Kaycee Rogers (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Upon completion of the program, students will have earned a Master of Science in Curriculum & Instruction with certification to teach their specified subject area(s) in high school and/or middle school. (Students taught at this level are typically 10-21 years old, which corresponds to grades 6 through 12). Every graduate will also have the opportunity to earn a certification to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) which qualifies them to teach English Language Learners while supporting core academic subject instruction.
