Certain majors and teaching areas have recommended pairings, indicated by a star. These pairings have course requirements in the major that most closely match the entrance requirements for the selected area of teaching. However, there’s not just one path to teaching certain subjects, and we encourage you to explore many areas as you make a plan for a career as a teacher.

If you have already completed your bachelor’s degree, visit the website for the area you’re interested in to learn more about admission and prerequisite requirements.
