Physics: Adolescence to Young Adult Teacher Education

Overview of the Program:

Students majoring in Physics who wish to teach physics, at the high school level may choose to obtain licensure in AYA Physics.  This program prepares students to design and deliver instruction that encourages critical thinking, conceptual understanding and problem-solving in physics for the high school students they will teach.

Students who choose this option pursue the B.A. program in Physics.  To fulfill the licensure requirements, students declare a second major in Education which requires 36 hours of professional education course work.  Completion of both majors leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree in Physics and recommendation for Ohio teacher licensure.
