The School of Education offers a program in Physics Education which qualifies graduates for certification to teach high-school physics (grades 7-12) in New York State. This requires the completion of the physics major as well as a second major in Science Education, consisting of at least nine courses in education and psychology. See the School of Education Undergraduate Catalog for details.
Physics students interested in high-school teaching should also consider Manhattanville's 5-year double degree program, the B.A./M.A.T. Under this program, students begin graduate coursework in education during their senior year, and continue during a fifth year, after which they are eligible for certification. See the School of Education Graduate Catalog for details.
Note: No course with a grade lower than C- will be accepted toward a major or minor in physics. In addition, students must maintain a C average in all courses required for a major or minor.
