What will I learn?

The teaching majors in physics and earth-space science-two distinct programs-are for those who wish to teach one of these subjects to grades 5-12. As science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields continually develop, our courses combine fundamental science courses with the Department of Education's teaching curriculum. The teaching majors are designed not only to give you an exceptional understanding of physics or earth-space science, but also to prepare you to pass your knowledge off to students in a classroom setting.


  • Curriculum design gives you a wealth of knowledge in the sciences as well as in the fundamentals of teaching
  • Education courses teach you to confidently enter a classroom, from lesson-planning to articulating your own unique approach to pedagogy.
  • Ability to enter the classroom within your first year, gaining experience very early on in your education
  • A variety of school settings give you practice with various teaching methods
  • UIndy's School of Education is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.


  • You are interested in teaching at the middle school or high school level
  • You have an interest in these particular areas of science
  • You genuinely enjoy helping others
