In order to provide students with enough information to make an informed decision about pursuing secondary education, the College of Education offers group advising sessions each month on campus. Each group session lasts about two hours. All undergraduates who are pursuing regular secondary certification (not special education majors) are required to attend one secondary group advising session. The secondary group advising session benefits students by:
- Providing the information they need to understand their program requirements.
- Explaining major and minor choices.
- Providing opportunities to ask questions about secondary teacher certification.
- Providing access to secondary education faculty advisors.
You are welcome to attend a secondary group advising session at your earliest convenience. No reservations are required. The schedule of group advising sessions is available at www.emich.edu/coe/oas/sessions.html.
Some advising for secondary education students is done in the Department of Teacher Education, 313 Porter Building, 734.487.3260. All secondary education students will have advisors outside of the Department of Teacher Education as well. Most of your advising is done in those departments. You should speak to an advisor in your major area as well as your minor area. Contact information for departments outside of the Department of Teacher Education can be found on the List of Advisors.
