Prepare for a Career Influencing Young Scientists
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in science teaching is a program designed for students with an interest in becoming a science teacher — and can be paired with a concentration in Earth and Space Science, Chemistry Teaching, or Biology Teaching.
Science education at Olivet is an integrated effort of the School of Life and Health Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education. By the time students complete this program, they will know the proper science, understand students, communicate well and have the required teaching experience to teach introductory and advanced science courses at the high school level.
At Olivet, students will learn the best methods, plans and strategies for teaching sciences classes to middle through high school students. Students will complete between 100 to 130 hours of field experiences. Once completed, they will spend 60 supervised days teaching in a real classroom.
