Integrated Science Major

B.S. in Ed. degree, Provisional Elementary Certification

This major offers a balanced, interdisciplinary program of coursework in the life, physical, and earth and space sciences for students planning to teach elementary or middle school. The required courses have been selected to prepare students to teach the science content in the Michigan Curriculum Framework including strong preparation in science inquiry through laboratory and field methods experiences. Students are encouraged to work closely with an advisor throughout their program. Courses, where appropriate, may be double counted with the University Program and the degree requirements on the Bachelor of Science in Education.

Admission Requirements, Retention & Termination Standards

Students are cautioned that they must have 36 semester hours on their Integrated Science major that are not counted on any other major or minor for teacher certification. All courses must be taken for a grade, not for credit/no credit even if offered as an option. Grades in courses transferred to CMU will count in the calculation of the major GPA. A minimum 2.7 GPA (B-) must be earned in all teaching majors.

In addition to the courses listed below, each student must receive training in safe chemical use and storage and care of living things from trained personnel prior to applying for student teaching. Students should check the integrated science website for the training workshop schedule. There is no enrollment charge to the students for the training and no credit hours are earned. The training is generally offered once during the Fall semester and twice during the Spring semester. The Interdisciplinary Science Education Council oversees these training workshops.

This major is administered by the Integrated Science Education Council. The requirements are pending state approval and may change. See your advisor.
