The Physics Teaching Option is provided to physics majors who plan to teach high school physics. One would major in physics (e.g., traditional physics) and complete a minor in profession education from the College of Education and Human Services.
This option will provide you the necessary credentials to teach. Students choosing this option are also encouraged to apply to our Physics Teaching Apprenticeship Program in order to get “on the job” training in the classroom. Students choosing this option are also encouraged to complete a physics teaching internship offered by the College of Education and Human Services.
For more information about the Physics Teaching Option, please contact Dr. James Garner, chair of the Physics department.
