Physical Science, 8th-12th Grade Teacher Certification

Want to combine your love of science with your passion for teaching?

Influence future generations and share your love of science with young students with a degree in Physical Science Education or Science Composite Education from LeTourneau University. 

As part of the physical science or science composite education program, extensive training in the sciences in the classroom and in labs is coupled with informative education courses and multiple teaching practicums. This combination ensures that students are not only well-informed in their field, but also prepared for teaching in a classroom setting.

Most of us can remember the name of at least one teacher in our lives who was exceptional. They may have piqued our interest for a subject we previously found boring, helped us find our passion or simply been a mentor to us when we needed it most. For whatever reason, we remember them. At LeTourneau, we make those teachers.
