Physics majors pursuing a teaching license at the 9-12 level may complete either the BA or BS physics program requirements. In addition, students must complete the undergraduate education department courses required for a Minnesota teaching license (see Education minor with teaching license). The methods course required for this secondary license is EDU 5740: Teaching Science in the Middle and High Schools (5-12).

To extend this license to include teaching science in grades 5-8 requires the following six additional courses:

  • BIOL 1800: Principles of Ecology and Evolution
  • BIOL 1820: Principles of Plant and Animal Physiology
  • CHEM 1130 and 1140: General Chemistry I & II
  • PHYS 101: Astronomy (to be taken at Augsburg through ACTC)
  • GEOL 150: Dynamic Earth and Global Change (to be taken at Macalester through ACTC).
