SECONDARY TEACHING LICENSE (GRADES 6-12)
The U of U's secondary teacher education program, in partnership with public education, provides the foundation and experience to work with Utah's students in communities from urban to rural, across age and ability levels, and from diverse cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
