Science Teaching


The programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Science Teaching are designed for students planning to teach biological sciences, chemistry, or physical sciences on the secondary school level (grades 9-12). To be recommended for licensure, students must earn a grade of C or higher in all required science content and education courses.

Double Majors in Science Teaching and Content Area

The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Science Teaching could result in a double major in Science Teaching and the select content area (Biological Sciences, Chemistry, or Physics). To receive a double major in Science Teaching and the selected content area, a Change of Academic Program form must be completed to declare both majors. To achieve a double major, the appropriate plan of study listed under Science Teaching must be followed and all major requirements from both programs must be satisfied. The double major prepares students for teaching science on the secondary level and graduate work in the respective content field.
