1

This course meets a General Education requirement. 

2

Because of possible double counting between General Education and the major, the actual total can be reduced to 122-123 credits.

3

In order to meet requirements for endorsements and duel majors this number is subject to change. Students should consult with their advisor. 

Students must earn a grade of C or better in each content area and education course in the major (BIO, CHE, GEL, PHY, PSY, MAT, EDU). Courses with grades of C- or lower must be repeated.

Students with 9-12 licensure in Science Education may choose one or more Middle Level Endorsements. See endorsement area listing under Major in Elementary Education with Middle Level Endorsement in the Education section of this catalog.
