University offers an accredited program for the preparation
of high school physics teachers. The BS in Education
degree is provided through the Department of Educational
Studies and Secondary Education and is supported by
the Department of Physics and Engineering Technology.
Each student is assigned two advisors, one in education
and one in physics. The Department of Physics and Engineering
Technology provides all of the required physics courses
plus opportunities for students to work on special projects
relating to physics education. There continues to be
a widespread shortage of physics teachers so graduates
find a favorable job market.
