College of Education & Human Service Professions (DCEH) 48UGR Education & Human Service Pro 246 - Bachelor of Applied Science

Program description

The Bachelors of Applied Sciences (B.A.Sc.) degree in Teaching Earth and Space Science prepares students to teach General Science (grades 5-8) and Earth & Space Science (grades 9-12). The major aligns to the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) standards for General Science in grades 5-8 and Earth & Space Sciences in grades 9-12 in Minnesota. The B.A.Sc. in Teaching Earth and Space Sciences is offered by the Department of Education in conjunction with the Department of Geological Sciences. This major is for students who plan to teach all science areas in grades 5 through 8 and teach earth and space sciences in grades 9 through 12. Students have the option of also completing the environmental education emphasis with this major. This emphasis enhances the student's major by integrating environmental education into formal (pre-K-12), as well as nonformal education settings such as parks and nature centers. A student in this emphasis must meet the same GPA requirements as for the major.

Students should utilize a What-if APAS Report as the official tool to see all requirements for degree completion. Due to the complexity of the admission to the Blocks process, students are strong encouraged to meet with their assigned academic advisor on a regular basis to establish a plan for program completion,
