Integrated Science

The B.S. in Integrated Science is designed for students seeking to teach science in high schools.

The sixty credit hour degree meets the State of Michigan’s requirements for 12 credit hours each in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science and Physics.  An additional 12 credit hours in any one of these areas provides a minor in the area as required by the State of Michigan.  Students successful in completing this program and passing the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification in Integrated Science will meet the standards for the ‘highly qualified’ designation.  This degree is only for those students who are also seeking a certificate in secondary education.  It is also a degree intended for students who desire to teach in smaller school districts.  Students seeking employment in large districts should consider majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science or Physics and minoring in another of these 4 areas.
