Physics Education Major

The physics education curriculum is designed for students seeking adolescent to young adult (grades 7-12) teaching licensure in physics. Students will be exposed to the spectrum of topics that are typically taught at the secondary level: classical and modern physics with some elements of engineering. Additionally, students will design a physics education research project and implement it during the senior capstone and student teaching experience.
