VI. Requirements for Teacher Preparation:

Teacher Preparation Requirements

Physics is part of the requirement for licensure in physical science. For

licensure, students must acquire a high level of competency in physics or

chemistry. The physics emphasis is listed here; the chemistry emphasis is

listed in the chemistry section. Note that either emphasis will satisfy the

licensure requirement.

For the physics emphasis, students must complete:

Phys 1101-1102-General Physics I-II

Phys 2101-Modern Physics

Phys 2201-Circuits and Electronic Devices

Phys 3101-Classical Mechanics

Phys 3301-Optics

Chem 1101-1102-General Chemistry I-II

or Chem 1111-1112-Honors General Chemistry I-II

Chem 2301-Organic Chemistry I

Chem 2311-Organic Chemistry Lab I

Chem 3101-Analytical Chemistry

required professional education courses, including the science methods

course and student teaching in physics

The teaching minor in physics requires:

Phys 1101-1102-General Physics I-II

Phys 2101-Modern Physics

Phys 2201-Circuits and Electronic Devices

Phys 3101-Classical Mechanics

required professional education courses, including the science methods

course and student teaching in physics

Early consultation with an advisor in physics is recommended. Required

courses may not be taken S-N unless offered S-N only.

For information concerning teacher licensure in physics see the Secondary Education section of this catalog.
