In cooperation with the science departments and the College of Education, this minor provides a pathway to a middle school (5 – 8) science endorsement. Students should be aware that the program described may change as the BOT considers changes to the science requirements for this endorsement. Students will need to work closely with their academic advisor to ensure that they will satisfy the BOT requirements. Successful completion of the Middle School Science program will enable a student to apply for an endorsement to teach general science in the middle school upon achieving passing scores for all the relevant Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLEs).
Note: The following is an additional requirement only if a student is K-6 seeking a middle school science endorsement. If a student is a secondary science major seeking a middle school science endorsement, this course is already required in that major program.
