The Purdue Computer Science Teaching Supplemental Licensure Program prepares education majors to teach computer science in secondary schools. The program is designed to meet the ISTE Secondary Computer Science Education program standards. The program consists of two components, one in computer science and one in education.
The computer science foundation is obtained by taking five courses. Some of the courses are not only offered by Computer Science, but also through Electrical & Computer Engineering and Mathematics.
The education-related requirements include a computer science methods course, which addresses methods for teaching computer science at the high school level, and a teaching practicum in CS completed in coordination with the teaching practicum in the primary licensure area:
