Teacher Certification - Grades 7-12
Students wishing to major in physics and receive teacher certification for grades 7-12 must complete all the requirements for the BS in physics, which include the requisite 36 credits in science, as well as the 33 credits in education outlined in this bulletin. This program will require a minimum of 134 credits.
Students in their senior year may elect to take an internship course (PHY 430) with the approval of the department chair. The Coordinator of Internships will assist them in finding appropriate placements.
Pre-Engineering Transfer Program
The College offers a two-year program leading to a transfer option to an accredited college of engineering. Under this plan students complete two years as a physics major, after which, if in good academic standing, they have the option of remaining at Iona to pursue the BS degree, or of transferring to a college of engineering to obtain a BE degree.
