Students wishing to pursue a career in education at WMU will need to meet with an LMC Teacher Education program advisor for assistance in developing an individualized Student Education Plan (SEP). In discussions with their advisor, students will determine the teaching certification/grade level they are interested in pursuing, their college selection, and an academic content major area for additional endorsements. With several course options in this program, it is important that students choose courses based on their career and transfer goals.
