  Learning Objectives - Teaching Degrees

 
The physics teaching degrees are the BS in Physics Teaching and the BS in Composite Teaching-Physical Science.  The two degrees require a relatively small number of physics courses in conjunction with the requirements from the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP).   The principal goal of our program relative to these degrees is to give students a scientific background adequate to prepare them to teach science.


  • To be able to teach physics at an introductory level to non-science majors.
  • To satisfy Utah educational standards for a secondary science teacher.
