Upon completion of Calculus I, students are ready to begin the 2-semester introductory physics coursework. The advanced physics coursework is completed in the junior and senior years. Most of the advanced courses are currently offered only every other year, thus the juniors and seniors take the advanced courses together. Many majors participate in undergraduate research projects and present results at professional meeting. The physics faculty work closely with the majors to advise and mentor them through the program. The education courses include both undergraduate courses and graduate courses that are begun as early as the junior year. The final semester consists of a practicum of teaching in the high school environment.
For admission to the MAT program, faculty recommendation and interview with the College of Education IMAT program director is required. For more information on admissions requirements, please visit the Office of Admissions website.
