The secondary education curriculum leads to a bachelor's degree in education and secondary school teaching certification in the following major and minor areas: biology, chemistry, physics, earth/space, and integrated sciene. Whereas this degree is granted by the College of Education, students also have the option of earning secondary school certification in conjunction with a bachelor's degree from the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts or the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
The bachelors degree in secondary science provides educators with a teaching certificate (grades 6-12) in the areas in which they have a major and minor(s). Educators may add other endorsement areas after certification.
Academic Services in the College of Education provides admissions information.
