Career as a Physics Teacher
To complete the coursework required to become certified to teach on the secondary level, there are two options:
- The courses that fulfill a minor in secondary education must be taken. Please consult with faculty from the School of Education. (See requirements under the School of Education, specifically the minor).
- Enroll in Loyola's five-year combined BS/MAT program where the participant receives a Master of Arts in Teaching and a certification to teach physics at the secondary level. Applications are due in the junior year. Please refer to the MAT and the combined BS/MAT websites and contact the chair of the physics department as soon as possible to discuss the graduate courses.
