Overview Of The Program

The science education program is designed to provide a strong content background in one or more science disciplines and extensive practice using constructivist teaching strategies to prepare teacher candidates for today’s classroom. Certifications (specializations) are available in Biology (9-12), Chemistry (9-12), Physics (9-12) and General Science (5-12). Our program provides early teaching opportunities in middle school classrooms, workshops in association with the NASA IV&V Educator Resource Center, participation in state science teacher conferences, membership in professional organizations, opportunities for international travel adn public outreach, and research experiences using radio telescopes at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, WV. Science education students earn the B.A. Degree in Education with specializations in two or more science areas. Some students choose to double major, earning both a B.S. in a science discipline (e.g., chemistry or biology) and a B.A. in Education.
