Teachers of science typically are people who are fascinated with the phenomena of life, enjoying the mystery of analyzing problems and seeking solutions to them. The general science major offers in-depth preparation for teaching science in grades 5-12. Secondary schools typically group the special areas of science into the broad fields of biological science, chemistry, earth science, and physics. Most prospective science teachers, therefore, prepare to teach general courses and find a broad background is most useful.
This degree is only available with a second major in Secondary Education.
