In the Secondary Education program at UM-Flint, students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty in the Education department and the College of Arts and Sciences who have a vast variety of professional and content expertise.

The University of Michigan-Flint offers secondary teacher certification programs in several content areas including English, French, History, Mathematics, Music (K-12), Psychology minor, Social Studies, Spanish, Speech, Visual Art (K-12) and the Secondary Certification (MAC) program, the Detroit Teacher Project, which is a clinically based Master of Arts program situated in an urban context.

Please see the catalog for information on each program.

Starting fall 2015, we will be offering a place-based redesigned Secondary Education program that is “uniquely Flint.” It will occur in four distinct phases that include early field experiences as well as field experiences embedded throughout the program. Stay tuned for more information about this new and innovative program!
