Physics Major - Physics for Secondary Teachers Option


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Options, and Minors

The Physics for Secondary Teachers option gives high-quality academic preparation to students who wish to become Colorado licensed grades 7-12 science teachers. This option is extremely demanding and requires careful planning and advising. Students choosing this option should consult a Physics Department advisor as early as possible in their careers and should read the Teacher Education  section of this catalog for the steps and requirements for applying to the Teacher Education Licensure Program.

REQUIREMENTS FOR A BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN PHYSICS - PHYSICS FOR SECONDARY TEACHERS OPTION:


Liberal Arts Core - Credits: 39


See Liberal Arts Core .

Subtotal Specific Departmental Requirements - Credits: 37


Subtotal Auxiliary Requirements - Credits: 28


Total Major Requirements - Credits: 65


Subtotal Education Requirements - Credits: 39


Note: Admission to Teacher Education required for all 400-level education courses.

TOTAL REQUIRED FOR GRADUATION - CREDITS: 138**


Note: Among the minimum 120 credits required for the degree, 45 credits must be upper-division (300- and 400-level) courses.

** Students may complete this degree within the 138-credit maximum, but to do so they must use courses from the major to complete certain Liberal Arts Core requirements (e.g., ED 222 , MATH 221 PHYS 146 PHYS 217 ). Using these courses to meet both major and Liberal Arts Core requirements enables the student to complete within the 138-credit limit.

Note to transfer and former students: If you have taken any of your major requirements and received a different number of credits than listed above, you may need to complete additional major credit requirements.
