HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. – Northern Kentucky University will add two new academic offerings this fall, expanding the continuum of education it offers to teachers at all stages of their careers.

“We are pleased to be able to serve the needs of not only aspiring educators, but also of veteran educators who wish to further advance their careers,” said Cynthia J. Reed, dean of the College of Education and Human Services.

The new Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education degree will provide specialized training to aspiring high school teachers.

Now, undergraduate students will be able to pursue two degrees concurrently: one in a selected content area through the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as a secondary education major in the College of Education and Human Services.

For veteran teachers who wish to mentor and lead the next generation of educators, NKU will now offer an Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree in Teaching and Leading. Educators who have obtained a master’s degree and Rank II status are eligible to apply.
