Note: All Winona State University teacher education programs are continuously updated to reflect new licensure requirements from the Minnesota Board of Teaching. Please contact your program advisor and refer to the Teacher Education Addendum for the latest information about program requirements whether you are (1) applying to a teacher education program, or (2) currently enrolled in a teacher education program.
The Physics Department, in cooperation with other science departments and the College of Education, has developed a Minnesota Board of Teaching (BOT)-approved program. Students should be aware that the program described below may continue to change as the BOT considers changes to the Science Licensure Programs. Students will need to work closely with their academic advisor to ensure that they will be able to graduate with a BOT-approved degree.
Successful completion of the Physics Teaching program will enable a student to apply for licensure in 9-12 high school physics and physical science upon achieving passing scores on the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examination (MTLE) basic skills, content, and pedagogy tests.
