This baccalaureate degree program provides a broad-based preparation for teachers of science at the middle, junior, or senior high school levels (grades 5-12). The requirements for this degree are more comprehensive than those of the Bachelor of Arts in Education — Middle School Science option. Students in this major are assigned two advisors, as both the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Education have requirements for degree completion. Students must pass the WEST-B and College of Education program admission process before completing the education courses and must complete student teaching and WEST-E exams prior to state teacher certification.
A minimum of 126 credits, including 48 upper-division credits (300-level and above), is required for graduation.
