Program Requirements & Opportunities
The State of Michigan does not recognize religion as a state-certifiable subject, but secondary education majors with a minor in religion will receive an official endorsement from the religion department for teaching religious studies either in the Christian or public secondary school setting.

MTTC Test: Not required
Candidates completing this religion minor will not have religion listed on their teaching certificates but will still be qualified to teach religion in grades 6-12 in Michigan. Students interested in teaching religion will complete a non-certifiable religion minor in addition to a certifiable major. Contact Professor Tom Thompson for details.
REL 357 should be taken prior to the Directed Teaching semester (EDUC 346). While the Teacher Education Program will attempt to accommodate students who wish to also teach religion during their student teaching experiences, that experience must be completed primarily in each student’s state certified major.
With over 100 majors and programs, you’re bound to find something you love.
