Science Education

Science for Secondary Education (5-12)

The Biology, Chemistry & Physics Secondary Education major is designed for students who seek careers providing personal fulfillment and service to others.  Its mission is to prepare graduates who are scientifically literate and who recognize both the practical usefulness and the inherent value of a liberal arts education.

We seek to give students a breadth of experience to be able to effectively educate the next generation of students in the natural sciences.


To be licensed to teach in a secondary school in Montana, grades 5-12, students at Carroll must complete a secondary education major or a K-12 major. Students interested in a secondary education major or a K-12 major should contact not only individuals within the major department, but also must seek additional counsel from an advisor within the Department of Education. Students pursuing licensure in secondary education must be accepted into the Teacher Education Program.
