Secondary Education

Welcome to the Secondary Education (SCED) Program in the Department of Education Specialties, housed in the Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies at Salisbury University. Our faculty and staff members are committed to preparing prospective teachers and we look forward to working with you.

Our work is guided by a conceptual framework centered on knowledge, skills and dispositions, critical for today’s educators to promote student success. You can find information about our Conceptual Framework’s specific themes and associated learning outcomes at

Teacher education candidates in a secondary education program complete a rigorous program of study in the academic major and professional education courses.  Secondary education programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and approved by the Maryland State Department of Education for secondary school teacher certification (Grades 7-12). Salisbury University offers bachelor's degree programs leading to secondary certification in a number of liberal arts and science disciplines. 

Persons already holding an undergraduate degree who wish to teach in their subject area at the secondary level, should apply to the MAT Program.
