The Bachelor of Science in Natural Sciences - Physical Science at Colorado State University provides the subject matter, the education classes, and the classroom experience required for secondary science education licensure in Colorado.

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Bachelor of Science in Natural Sciences - Physical Science at Colorado State University  begins with two semesters each of calculus, chemistry, and physics, plus a semester of biological science. 

Students then complete the major by earning two minors selected from Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Mathematics, Statistics, or Physics. Completion of the double minor gives an unusual breadth in the physical sciences. Recent graduates have pursued careers in the sciences. 

Others use this background as a basis for graduate work and research or for entry into medical or veterinary professional programs.

Learning Outcomes

Students will demonstrate:

  • Skills to critically interpret scientific data.
  • Logical and critical thinking.
  • Analysis and solving of complex problems.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills.

Potential Occupations

Graduates with licensure in secondary science education will find a strong demand for high school and junior high/middle school teachers in Colorado and elsewhere in the nation. In addition, these graduates will also have the background required for graduate science education programs.

With proper planning, physical science graduates can meet requirements for professional schools (e.g., medicine or law) or graduate programs in the basic or applied sciences. Internships and volunteer activities can provide practical training and experience.
