The College of Education provides the professional course sequence, administers admission and retention in its programs and field experiences, and recommends for certification.

Marquette offers certification in elementary/middle education (grades 1-8) and middle/secondary education (grades 6-12). Students who complete the teacher education program graduate with a double major in education and an academic content area. Those students pursuing a degree in Educational Studies must also complete a second major, but they are not restricted by the list below. Please speak with your advisor.

Students pursuing a major in middle/secondary education may pursue a minor for certification; both elementary/middle and middle/secondary students with strong second language skills may pursue a licensure minor in Bilingual-Bicultural.
