Teacher Certification in Physics

Physics majors intending to complete student teaching after graduation in the University's Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program must complete the physics major and the educational studies minor in education (or its equivalent) as undergraduates. Consult the education section of the University Catalog and/or speak to the coordinator of the teacher education program in the Department of Education as early as possible.
