The Secondary Education program from National Louis University is designed for professionals looking to change careers to become teachers for grades 6–12. 


The Secondary Education program from National Louis University will allow you to work toward obtaining an Illinois professional educator license (PEL) with applicable grade-level and content-area endorsements.


Currently, our country’s education schools don't graduate an adequate number of qualified teachers to meet the demand, and job prospects are best in areas including urban and rural school districts.

NLU students are recognized by school principals as teachers who are comfortable in the classroom, can improve student performance and understand how schools are run.
