Department of CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION

Chair: David Foulk

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction consists of five program areas: English education, health education, mathematics education, multilingual/multicultural education, and science education. Each of these program areas offer undergraduate degrees to prepare middle and high school teachers in specific disciplines.

HEALTH EDUCATION

Professors: Foulk, Sutherland

A health education program including teacher certification is offered leading to either a bachelor of science (BS) or a master of science (MS) degree. This program is designed to prepare health educators to assist individuals in achieving an optimal level of health, to prevent disease and debilitating conditions from occurring, and to minimize the impact of such diseases and conditions upon individuals who have been affected. With a degree in health education, an individual may choose from such practice settings as the school system, business and industry, community agencies, and governmental and tax-supported agencies, as well as the medical care systems.

Admission to the undergraduate program requires a minimum composite score of 20 on the Enhanced ACT or a combined score of 960 on the SAT I. If the student desires teacher certification, additional admission requirements apply. This procedure is administered by the Dean of the College of Education and assigned to the office of student services, located in 108 Stone Building.

Degree/Certification

The bachelor of science (BS) and master of science (MS) degrees are available. The BS degree requires sixty (60) credit hours of upper-division course work, including either student teaching or a community health field experience. Students entering the masters degree program without an undergraduate degree in health education or some area of allied health may be required to take additional courses. Masters degree candidates desiring teacher certification as an area of specialization must meet additional requirements. For further details, refer to the Graduate Bulletin.

SCE 4948r Practicum in Science Education (1-5)

Student teaching involves a 15-week field experience during which students teach classes in their areas of specialization. Opportunities are provided to learn about schools and the manner in which science curricula are administered within schools. The practicum is a course that is conducted in conjunction with student teaching. Students meet to discuss their school-based experiences and to integrate theory and practice.

Specialty Areas (select one)

Students must complete fifty to fifty-one (50-51) semester hours of science for majors in a specialty area. Fifteen (15) of these semester hours may be satisfied when completing requirements for admission to the upper division major. The student will work with a faculty adviser to design a program to ensure certification and competency in one of the following areas: biological science, chemistry, physics, middle school science, and earth/space science.
