VI. Requirements for Teacher Preparation:

Students interested in secondary teaching in earth science must complete a program of coursework that includes professional education courses, core science courses, and additional geology requirements. Details and specific courses are listed in the Education area of this catalog.

professional education courses (described under Education, Secondary)

geology courses (described below)

the following science core courses:

Biol 1101—Biological Principles

Biol 2101—Evolution of Biodiversity

Chem 1101-1102—General Chemistry I-II

Geol 1101—Physical Geology

Geol 1121—Historical Geology: Earth History and

Changing Scientific Perspectives

Phys 1101—General Physics I

In addition, students must complete:

Geol 2101—Mineralogy and Crystallography
