Second Academic Concentration Requirement

All students majoring in Elementary and Physical Education are required to complete an approved second academic concentration consisting of a minimum of 18 semester hours in a basic academic discipline or an approved interdisciplinary field of study. Depending on the academic discipline selected, a maximum of six (6) hours may be counted toward General Education requirements and the second concentration. This requirement became effective for all students who entered the University in fall 2005. Some departments (e.g., French and Spanish) require 24 hours for their second academic concentration. All students majoring in Middle Grades Education must complete 24 hours in two of four content fields: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, or Social Studies. This requirement also applies to students seeking a second degree in one of the affected majors. Students should check with the major school/department about this requirement or additional requirements specific to individual programs.
