In Science Education there are four different ways in which students can prepare for licensure. We have as the major Chemistry with three concentrations of Earth/Space Science, Biology, and Physics. Pursuing a degree in one of these areas provides students an opportunity to apply for licensure in that content area for grades 5-12. Students must be admitted into the Science Education program and into Student Teaching. In addition, there are several additional mandatory requirements that students must meet (including appropriate background checks and passing required teacher examinations) at various points in the program. These additional requirements are stated in the Education Handbook and Student Teaching Handbook.
