Secondary (High School)

Science teachers are in high demand in Washington State and across the country. Our graduates enjoy fulfilling careers, with many employment options. Science teachers get to share their love of science and make a difference in their community.

Secondary science teachers receive certification to teach grades 5-12, but most teach at the high school level, grades 9-12.  Students specifically interested in middle level (4-9) should consider the Middle Level Science Teaching MajorEach major program is described below.  For all programs, you should visit with the appropriate advisor as soon as possible.  The most current program requirements and course descriptions are available on the online course catalog.
