Broad Field Science Education
Exploring the world of science.
The sciences have been a part of your interests early on, yet that passion you have inside is ready to inspire others. With this in mind, the broad field science education program at Marian University allows you to not only learn more about the sciences, but also share that knowledge with students at the middle and high school levels.
The broad field science education program combines a balance of theory and practice through hands-on learning experiences, both in the areas of the sciences and in practical teaching opportunities. You’ll find personalized support and instruction from passionate faculty and staff, as well as engage in student teaching experiences as early as your sophomore year.
As part of the broad field science education program, you’ll explore the world of science, with curriculum centered on biology, chemistry, earth and space science, environmental science and physics. With Marian’s rich history in teaching educators for nearly 80 years, you’ll be met with quality instructors eager to work with you to achieve your goals.
The broad field science education program, coupled with a middle-secondary education license, allows you to teach any science class at the middle to high school level. You’ll find success after graduation, with four field experiences and a senior student teaching experience that prepares you for your future classroom. Graduates of the program who are also interested in teaching high school college preparatory classes, advanced placement courses or elective courses with content depth, may also earn a concentration in a specific subject area.
