Science Education Major (B.S.)


The Science Education major is designed to prepare students for a public and private teaching career in general science, grades 5-8, and life science, grades 9-12. The program is structured to meet the Minnesota Board of Teaching General Science and Life Science licensure requirements. The student must be accepted into and fulfill all requirements for the Teacher Education Department as well as the Math and Science Department.

Program Requirements


Christian Studies Core


I. Christian Studies - 24 Credits


General Education Core


II. General Education - 30 Credits


Major Core


III. Science Education Major - 64-65 Credits


All major core classes and education core classes as well as general education English and math classes require a minimum passing grade of a C.

Total - 125-143 Credits *


1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.

2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.

3 Students who take a 3 credit science elective may need to take an extra credit of general elective courses to reach the institutional minimum of 125 credits for a baccalaureate degree.

4 Students who scored high enough on the ACT to petition to waive EDU 209  (consult the teacher education department for more information), may need to take an extra credit of general elective courses to reach the institutional minimum of 125 credits for a baccalaureate degree.

* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of credits needed for graduation would be toward the lower end of the range of total credits.
