Teachers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields are in high demand. If you are looking for a way to combine your love of math and science with your desire to inspire and prepare today's youth for the future, Trevecca's bachelor's degree in Physics Education may be right for you!
The Physics Education program is designed to prepare students for a teaching career in grades six through twelve. This program is a collaborative effort between the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Science along with the School of Education. This program collaborates with area schools to provide students observation and teaching experiences to enhance their learning.
Students within this program will also have the opportunity to take part in research in different areas of interest, including near space research, SQUID microscope research, electron microscopy research, advanced labs, digital electronics research, student design projects, solar telescope research, 3D printing projects and more.
Students' education experience will culminate in student teaching or enrolling in the fifth year master’s program for a year-long internship.
