By its fundamental nature, physics is a vital part of every science student's education. The purpose of the Physics with Secondary Education program at Wheaton College Illinois is to provide students with the concepts of classical and contemporary physics and to develop both theoretical and experimental skills.

About

The Physics with Secondary Education program at Wheaton College Illinois is designed to train students for licensure in this rewarding career option. Currently, only 47% of physics classes are taught by a teacher with a degree in the subject, compared with 73% of biology classes and 80% of humanities classes. 

There is a rising number of students taking physics each year, and thus an ever-increasing need for well-trained physics teachers.
