B.S. in earth & Space Science with teaching

 

The B.S. with Teaching program in Earth & Space Science is part of Temple's innovative teacher-training program, “TUteach.” The B.S. with Teaching provides broad training in Earth & Space Science using a combination of traditional lecture, laboratory and field experiences, and prepares students for a career in secondary school teaching. Students who complete the B.S. with Teaching will meet Pennsylvania teacher certification requirements via theoretical and practical courses in education specifically designed for science and mathematics majors. The education courses in the B.S. with Teaching degree program include practice teaching in school district classrooms and emphasize inquiry-based approaches to learning.

 

Bachelor of science major requirements

General Chemistry I with lab; Calculus I; calculus-based Physics I; Physics 0846~; Earth & Environmental Science 2001, Earth & Environmental Science 2011, Earth & Environmental Science 2015, five upper division Earth & Environmental Science electives of which at least two must be writing-intensive; two of the following science foundation electives: Biology 1111, Biology 2112, Chemistry 1032/1034, Chemistry 2201/2203, Math 1042, Math 2031 or Physics 1062; along with SCI TEC 1189, 1289; Education 2179; Math Education or Science Education (Secondary) 2189, 4189, XXXX**, XXXX**, XXXX**, XXXX**; and Philosophy 3XXX**.
