Minds learn when hearts teach

Teaching is more than something you want to do—it’s who you want to be. With a streamlined, flexible program that best fits your lifestyle, the secondary & k–12 department at Concordia University Wisconsin is the place to help fulfill your lifelong calling. To teach with your heart in a middle school, high school, or subject-specific elementary setting.

Our Vision

Our program is so much more than lectures and classrooms; it’s led by a nationally-recognized, award-winning faculty with extensive middle school and high school teaching experience. We’ve also produced a variety of scholarship work and have received numerous departmental awards. But the best part is what this all means for you: a more effective, flexible program you can finish in fewer semesters.

All of our secondary & k12 department programs prepare graduates for licensure in Wisconsin in Grades 5 or 6 through 12, or for kindergarten through 12 in specific subject areas. You could be among our graduates who advance to serve in a myriad of educational contexts as teachers, school administrators, and counselors in schools spanning the entire k12 spectrum. You also have a chance to expand your teaching experience in placements throughout the United States and globally. In fact, many of our students honed their skills in classrooms in Japan, Uruguay, Shanghai and the Czech Republic.

Teaching is an amazingly rewarding journey—take your first step with us at Concordia University Wisconsin.
