NOTE: Many courses have prerequisites. Check the
schedule of courses.

*The above set of courses is not a stand-alone teaching major or teaching minor. These courses must be completed in combination with an approved teaching major in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics or Physical Science. In combination with these majors, the Integrated Science Endorsement may be substituted for a teaching minor. Also, a certified teacher or teacher candidate with an approved teaching major outside the sciences but with an approved science minor may earn an additional endorsement in Integrated Science. See an advisor in the College of Education, 134 Erickson Hall, for more information. Students must earn an overall GPA of 2.5 for the science courses listed above (including any approved course substitutions) as well as in the science teaching major or science teaching minor courses on which the endorsement is based and must pass the MTTC subject area test in Integrated Science – Secondary.

**PHY 183 and 184, 8 credits, with no additional Physics labs, can substitute for the 200 level physics and labs.
