Secondary Education General Science
Always questioning. Always learning. That’s the approach you’ll need take to become an educator for the next wave of young scientists. We encourage our students to join clubs and professional organizations, attend science and educational conferences, read science journals and more — our program is much more than just what you learn in class.
At York College, we believe a great science teacher needs to have a well-rounded background in many scientific disciplines as well as a solid understanding of how to teach and lead a classroom. For secondary education general science majors, students select one of three specialization areas that will become part of their required coursework – biology, chemistry or physics. You’ll also get extensive training on how to lead a classroom, including instructional technique, assessment methods, and technological skills. This degree prepares students for professional teacher certification in grades 7-12.
