Education Double Degree quick facts:

  • The Education Double Degree allows you to earn two undergraduate degrees.  Your first and primary degree will give you content knowledge of a subject area to teach.  Your second degree in Education will give you methods and strategies needed to teach your subject area at the secondary level (grades 6-12).  For example, if you want to be a high school Biology teacher, your primary degree might be in Biology or Biochemistry with a second degree in Education.
  • The Education Double Degree is 38-40 credits, depending on subject area.  If you decide to get a second degree, you will need 212 credits to graduate from Oregon State University.  For most students, the addition of the Double Degree adds three terms to their program of study.  Check out our education major sheet to find out the classes you will take.
  • Alongside the Education Degree, you will earn an Oregon teaching license.
  • With the Education Double Degree, middle level and high school teachers are able to teach one endorsement area (subject).  These endorsements are Social Studies, Language Arts, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Integrated Science, Mathematics, Health, and Family and Consumer Science.  In addition to the main subject area, students are able to pursue an ESOL endorsement.
  • Students interested in pursuing Elementary Education can explore our new BS in Teaching degree.
