Bachelor of Science, Earth and Space Science Education
Degree Requirements

Admission to a teacher education program is a joint decision by the academic discipline in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education.  Therefore, it is essential that any student desiring teacher certification meet with an adviser in the Office of Clinical Experience, Certification, and Advisement of the School of Education for admission to the teacher education program.

The following list shows the courses and the total number of credit-hours required in each category.  See the Typical Program of Study for a 4-year curriculum guide.  Students should consult their advisers regularly to work out and update their programs of study, and must have adviser approval in order to register each term.
