The Earth Science Education major and minor are designed to provide a basic understanding of those subjects normally included in a secondary earth science course:
Earth Science is a common course of study along with geology, astronomy, and oceanography in many high schools. More than 350 schools in Michigan now offer or plan to offer earth science.
This program is offered in collaboration with the Mallinson Institute for Science Education for prospective K-12 educators.
The College of Education and Human Development offers a two-tiered advising system for secondary education students with teaching majors in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students receive major/minor specific advising through the faculty or staff expertise within the department and general advising regarding university and general education requirements as well as pre-professional advising through the College of Education and Human Development Advising Office.
It is important to meet regularly with both a departmental and college advisor to ensure you have met all requirements for graduation.
