Undergraduate Programs We Offer
Teaching Earth and Space Sciences B.A.Sc. - This degree is offered by our department in partnership with UMD’s Department of Education. It's intended for students who plan to teach all science areas in grades 5 through 8 and teach earth and space sciences in grades 9 through 12.
Students also have the option of completing the environmental education concentration with this major. This concentration enhances the students' major by integrating environmental education into formal (pre-K-12) as well as non-formal education settings such as parks and nature centers.
