Having peers and colleagues who know and support you can make learning to be a teacher more enjoyable. The Middle Level Education, 6-8, program is designed to be a cohort program in which classes are offered during specific semesters. Students who enroll in the program at similar times take most of their major courses in the Department at the same time. Therefore, they get to know one another and create a supportive network. This network allows students to learn and grow in a collaborative, safe environment that allows mistakes, encourages reflection, and promotes professional learning.

In order to ensure Middle Level Education, 6-8, students are ready to teach when they graduate, they are provided with field experiences throughout their program.

Students plan and teach learning experiences while being supported by their instructors and mentor teachers. They also observe and participate in data sharing and team meetings. As they move through the program, the field experiences increase in time, rigor, and responsibility.

Professional Licensure Disclosure

MTSU discloses that the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Middle Level Education is a teacher licensure preparation program accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and approved by the Tennessee Department of Education. Admission to an undergraduate teacher licensure preparation program does not guarantee that students will obtain a teacher license. Successful completion of the program meets the educational requirements to apply for a practitioner teacher licensure in Tennessee.

The BS Middle Level Education disclosure provided on MTSU’s professional licensure disclosure website indicates the states and territories where MTSU has determined, through reasonable and good faith effort, that the program does or does not meet the educational requirements for other US states and territories. Licensing authorities for each state set and enforce their own requirements and standards, which are subject to change. Current and prospective students not located in Tennessee or who plan to seek licensure or certification outside the state of Tennessee should contact the appropriate state licensing agency or board and discuss their plans with an advisor and the MTSU Office of Teacher Licensure before enrolling in the program to ensure they have the most up-to-date information and guidance regarding licensure requirements.
