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.
