Science Education - Broad Area Science Teaching Minor

Initial Programs Home

This minor is restricted to students working on a major in biology, chemistry, Earth science, or physics. Science teaching majors must complete the appropriate courses in the three disciplines shown below that are outside their major. For example, a biology major would need to fulfill the chemistry, Earth science and physics requirements. Students interested in this minor need to see a science education advisor as soon as possible. This program may result in students taking more than four years to complete their degree. Students completing this minor are required to demonstrate knowledge, skill, and disposition proficiency of student learning outcomes through a program portfolio prior to student teaching. Students must pass the WEST-E exam for science to receive the science endorsement.
