Earth Sciences Teaching Major B.A.
The bachelor of arts in Earth sciences teaching program is offered by the Department of Earth Sciences in coordination with the Department of Education. The program is specifically designed to prepare students to teach Earth sciences in secondary school. With careful planning, upon graduation from this program, qualified students are prepared to complete a M.A.T./M.Ed. degree in education with an additional year of graduate study, which includes a year-long internship (EDUC 900A Internship and Seminar in Teaching/EDUC 901A Internship and Seminar in Teaching). After completing this typically five-year program, students receive full teacher certification for New Hampshire, which is recognized in many other states.
