The Bachelor of Science in Integrated Science is a five-year degree that prepares students for licensure in all areas of science, grades seven to 12. Students take a broad range of science-content courses in geology, geography, biology, chemistry and physics, and choose one area in which to specialize. Students complete most of their content coursework during their first four years and then begin their methods coursework during the spring of their fourth year. During the final year of the program, students complete remaining content courses, science teaching methods courses and a year-long placement in a local school district, which concludes with 13 weeks of student teaching in the spring. Integrated Science students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor early in their program as many courses must be sequenced carefully.
