Introduction/What is the Study of General Science - Secondary?

The Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Program is a visionary and practical program designed to enrich the training and education of K-12 pre-service teachers and, through them, their students. From a collaboration of the disciplines of Chemistry, Geology, Biology, Physics/ Astronomy, Mathematics and Engineering Technology, the Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Program (SMATE) offers an opportunity for teachers and future teachers to gain specific skills and broaden talents within their chosen discipline.

This program is designed to prepare future teachers at the middle school and secondary level with an emphasis in Science. This major must be accompanied by the professional preparation program in secondary education offered through Woodring College of Education.

Why Consider a General Science - Secondary Major? 

If you want a broad base of knowledge in the field of science to prepare you for teaching any science subject at the secondary level, this major will provide it. You will take a range of introductory courses from different areas of science, including Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Geology, along with an in-depth on a single subject such as Biology or Chemistry.
