The Science Education Department offers the Science Education K-8 Minor designed especially for elementary educators.
This minor is open to students in any education major, as well as to other students as appropriate. This minor is not endorsable but will prepare you to be a science leader in the schools, which is in high demand in Washington state and nationally. In addition, students who take the WEST-E in Middle Level Science and pass can achieve status as a Highly Qualified Teacher.
*This minor is only 17-18 additional credits for CWU elementary education majors. SCED322 is a required major course and three of the 106 courses are required general education courses for the elementary education major (or can be substituted from your science generals).

“The Science Education Department at CWU is top notch – CWU science teacher candidates leave the university well prepared to deliver high quality instruction right out of the gate.“
