 You are almost done with your BS in Science Education!

There are a number of important milestones along the way to completing your BS in Science Education: Upper Division, Internship Application, Senior Summary, Application for Graduation, and Licensure Application. Let’s take each in turn.

Upper Division

  • Apply toward the end of your sophomore year to no later than the end of your junior year. For the Upper Division Application, go to Teacher Education and click on the Teacher Education Handbook. The application is a form in the appendices.

Internship Application

  • Apply for your internship early in the spring of your junior year. You must be in Upper Division to apply and an important consideration is the listing of school systems where you would prefer to be placed. Speak to your advisor about this very important placement – closest to home may not be the best placement for you. For the Internship Application, go to Teacher Education and click on the Teacher Education Handbook. The application is a form in the appendices.

Senior Summary

  • You should work on your Senior Summary with your faculty advisor during the spring of your junior year and then finish and submit it when you come for advising in the fall of your senior year. This summary is a check to ensure you have met all program, teacher education, and university requirements for graduation.

Graduate Application

  • You should work on your Senior Summary with your faculty advisor during the spring of your junior year and then finish and submit it when you come for advising in the fall of your senior year. This summary is a check to ensure you have met all program, teacher education, and university requirements for graduation.

Licensure Application

  • You will want to apply to receive your teaching license. Complete this paperwork near the end of your internship, during the mandatory Senior II seminar. Go to Teacher Ed Licensure, read the instructions, and download the appropriate forms (A & V).
