Bachelor of Science in Middle School Science


What will I learn?

The middle school science major is for students who plan to teach science in grades 5 through 9. The middle school science major also requires completion of the science and mathematics education (SMED) program. Upon successful completion of both majors, the student will earn a Bachelor of Science degree and will qualify for an institutional recommendation for a Kentucky Provisional Certificate for teaching in the middle grades (5-9) science field.

To major in Middle School Science, students must complete 30-31 semester hours of coursework with a “C” or higher in each course. All science courses must be completed with an average GPA of 2.75 or better.
