This option is for students wanting to earn a bachelor’s degree in Education and qualify for an Oregon Teaching License to teach health at the middle school (grades 6–9) and/or the high school (grades 9–12) levels.

Health students are encouraged to add a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Endorsement in Health Sciences. This endorsement qualifies one to teach specialized career training courses at the secondary level. The CTE endorsement is earned by working 1,800 hours in the health industry or working 600 hours in a variety of health industry experiences including job shadows, internships, volunteer work and paid work. This endorsement can be added during or after the degree program so one can begin working on it at any time. For more information, check with the Double Degree Advisor.
