In addition to teaching fundamental and applied courses in biology, chemistry and physics, the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (CNSM) contributes to the University's science education programs by providing science education courses that are part of the early childhood and middle level education curricula administered by the College of Education. CNSM also offers the Bachelor of Science in Education (BSE) degree, which prepares students to teach science or mathematics at the secondary level. Students interested in the early childhood and middle level education programs should contact the College of Education (450-3175) for further information. Students interested in Mathematics Education should contact the Department of Mathematics (450-3147).
For the Bachelor of Science in Education program in secondary science, students complete a series of science courses in one of the licensure areas, the professional education sequence of courses for the secondary level, and General Education requirements. Please refer to the UCA Undergraduate Bulletin or to the linked checksheet for the most current listing of requirements for the B.S.E.
Teacher Licensure: A student with a B.S.E. degree in Biology who is interested in obtaining teaching licensure in life/EarthSscience should contact the science education faculty advisor in the Department of Biology or the chair of the Department of Middle/Secondary Education and Instructional Technologies at (450-3177)
