Students observe a teacher

Middle Grades Subject Endorsement

The University of Nebraska Kearney's Teacher Education Department has been the backbone of the educational system since its beginning as the Nebraska State Normal School in 1905. This extensive history of educating Nebraska’s educators brings an unmatched reputation and legacy that our graduates take with them to their schools and throughout their careers. The Middle Grades Subject Endorsement Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science programs at the University of Nebraska at Kearney are premier undergraduate programs that will prepare students to work with students in middle school. UNK students get in the classroom early and often, and our close partnership with Kearney and area schools gives students numerous opportunities to interact in both early field experiences and student teaching. We know the value of hands-on learning and we are here to guide you in these field experiences.

“When I decided to come to UNK, I didn't know if I was going to get involved or anything like that, but through my classes and, meeting new people, and being surrounded by some amazing peers, I got to appreciate what making a different is like, and the reason I chose my major was because I wanted to make a difference in others' lives.”
