The BS 7-12 program prepares students to be physics teachers at the junior high and high school levels. Students develop a strong foundation in the principles, concepts, analytic methods, and experimental techniques of physics and cognate subjects required at the bachelor-degree level. Together with the study of physics the student pursues a curriculum in the foundations of education and teaching at the secondary school level, including a one-semester student teaching practicum.
Students who successfully receive the B.S. 7-12 degree and pass Praxis® II will be recommended for Initial Teacher Certification.
