General Science with Teaching

 

The B.S. with Teaching program in General Science is part of Temple's innovative teacher-training program, “TUteach.” The B.S. with Teaching provides broad training in the sciences 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

 

Summary of Requirements for the Degree

1. University Requirements (124 total s.h.)

  • Math 0701 (4 s.h.) and/or English 0701 (4 s.h.), if required by placement testing.
  • All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses at Temple as part of their major. Following is a list of courses that can be used to satisfy the writing-intensive requirement: Biology 2296, Biology 3096, Biology 3196, Biology 3396, Chemistry 4196, Chemistry 4396, Earth & Environmental Science 4096, Earth & Environmental Science 4197/4997, English 2696, Philosophy 2196, Philosophy 2596, Physics 2796, Physics 4796 and Secondary Education 3796.
  • Students must complete the General Education (GenEd) requirements.
    • The General Education Curriculum consists of approximately 25-26 s.h.  See the General Education section of the Undergraduate Bulletin for the GenEd curriculum.

 

2. College Requirements

  • 90 credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST) or the College of Liberal Arts (CLA).

  • Four (4) Upper-Level (2000+) elective science courses are required (12-16 s.h.): The four electives must be selected from the same department. The departments you can choose electives from are: Biology, Chemistry, Earth & Environmental Science (EES) or Physics.
  • Two (2) College of Science & Technology courses are required (2 s.h.): SCI TEC 1189 and 1289.
  • Three (3) Education course is required (10 s.h.): Education 2179, 4388 and 4802.
  • Two (2) Mathematics or Science Education (Secondary) courses are required (6 s.h.): Math/Science Education 2189 and 4189.
  • One (1) Secondary Education course is required (3 s.h.): Secondary Education 3796.
  • One (1) Philosophy course is required (3 s.h.): Philosophy 2196.
  • One (1) Research Methods course is required (3 s.h.): Biology 3091, Chemistry 3091, Earth & Environmental Science 3091 or Physics 3091.  The course must be selected from the same department as the four science electives.

Note: In addition to the overall major residency requirements, half of the concentration area must be completed at Temple.
