The program results in certification in Adolescence Education (grades 7–12) in the chosen content area and Students with Disabilities (grades 7–12) Generalist with the option to add Middle School Extension (grades 5–6) in the content area. This program is designed to prepare candidates to teach in one of the following disciplines at the middle and adolescence levels (grades 7–12 or grades 5-12): biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, social studies, English, and Spanish.
