This minor is designed for students who wish to teach science and/or math at the middle level (grades 5-8). Completion of this minor results in a middle level math/science endorsement. The coursework provides experiences in math and science content and pedagogy including field experience. Students will learn about math, science, and the psychology of adolescents in addition to the more generalized coursework in their major. This minor is open only to students working on or currently holding teaching endorsements in elementary education, biology, chemistry, Earth science, mathematics, or physics. Students interested in this minor should see an advisor as soon as possible to discuss overlapping requirements with the general education program (potentially 25 credits of this minor could satisfy general education requirements).

Three introductory science courses with lab (1 life science, 1 earth science/astronomy, and 1 physical science required.) Credits: (15)
