And two physics electives (4000 level or above)–with permission, a 4000 level mathematics course may be substituted for one.
Physics and a Second Discipline (24 hrs.)
Required Courses (24 hrs.)
At least 24 semester hours from an approved discipline outside of the Department of Physics & Astronomy; any second area may be chosen with consent of the dean and department advisor. The approved area form must be submitted no later than the sophomore year.
Secondary Education (35 hrs.)
This concentration is part of the Geaux Teach–Math and Sciences Program. Students will obtain a degree in physics and, upon completing this concentration and meeting any additional requirements of the Louisiana Department of Education, will be eligible for certification in the state of Louisiana as teachers in grades 6-12.
EDCI 2500 will count as one of the General Education social science courses and PHIL 2786 as one of the approved social science/humanities courses. Some general education courses are taken in different years than in the standard curriculum. Students should plan their course work so that the last semester of the senior year can accommodate the 12 hours that are required to be taken concurrently (EDCI 4006 and EDCI 3136).PHYS 4125 and PHYS 4132 are not required for this concentration, but may be used as physics 4000 electives.
