Secondary Education (Professional Education Minor)

Do you remember your favorite teacher - the special person who encouraged and motivated you to follow your dreams? By participating in the Secondary Education program, you will choose a subject as your major and Professional Education as your minor while working toward licensure to teach in public and private schools. With Xavier's emphasis on care for the whole person, you could become that special teacher for one of your own students.
