Key Features

A person who enjoys physics and likes to work with young people should consider a career as a physics teacher. To prepare, you would complete most of the first physics, mathematics, and chemistry courses that any physics major would take, and apply them to earn a Bachelor of Science in either Education or in Physics with Master’s level licensure from the College of Education. In either case, a program of graduated preparation courses will prepare you for a career in the classroom. 

The facilities available in the Secondary Education - Physics (9-12) program from University of Missouri–St. Louis include the state-of-the art instrumentation of the Center for Nanoscience, wherein will be found advanced equipment for such specialized areas x-ray crystallography and atom-scale microscopy. The St. Louis Area benefits from activities of a particularly strong association of physics teachers, with which UMSL has an excellent relationship.
