The Master of Education in Secondary Education program at Temple University focuses on the needs and subject areas of today’s secondary school students.


Program Overview

Geared toward college graduates and working professionals with undergraduate degrees outside of education, this graduate program prepares graduates to teach grades seven through 12 in their chosen content area such as English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies or World Languages.

The Secondary Education graduate program at Temple University offers paths to initial certification in a variety of subject areas and with several design approaches. All options involve earning the equivalent of an academic major in a content area as well as taking development and pedagogy courses that prepare students to effectively teach chosen content areas to adolescents.

You can complete this graduate degree on a part-time or a full-time basis with evening classes on Temple’s Main Campus in Philadelphia. However, you will be required to fulfill a student teaching requirement, which is a full-time commitment.

After successfully completing the minimum requirements for certification, students may choose to leave the program with only certification, or they may elect to continue in the program, completing the additional credit hours and requirements necessary to receive certification and earn a master’s degree.
