In addition to coursework focused specifically on the middle level grades, pre-service teachers will also have the opportunity to work with students in multiple field placements in all three Lubbock area school districts to provide a variety of experiences. Candidates in our Middle School Education Program will specialize and certify in one of four teaching fields: math, science, social studies, or reading/language arts.
