At Winona State University, science education is an interdisciplinary effort to educate future teachers in the natural sciences. The science education faculty believes that all students should have a broad understanding of science and the nature of science. To accomplish this goal, the faculty is committed to prepare teacher education majors so that they can provide their students with a positive experience using challenging and rewarding science activities.

WSU offers two science education courses ( SCIE 201 - Investigative Science I: Physical Science in Your Environment  and SCIE 203 - Investigative Science III: Scientific Investigation of Your Environment ) specifically designed for certain elementary education majors. Please consult with your advisor to determine whether these courses are required for your major. Students who are interested in teaching science in middle school or high school should see those programs in their respective areas.

Physics - Physical Science (Teaching) (PPPS, PPST) - BT Major 
Chemistry - Physical Science (Teaching) (CPST) - BT Major
