Bradley's nationally accredited physics education program equips you to teach physics in grades nine through 12.
A physics education degree gives you foundational knowledge of science and shows you how to bring material to life in classrooms. You take core science courses through the physics department while you complete the teacher education requirements. You also work closely with the physics department faculty, which gives you a strong foundation in science. Professional classroom experiences begin your first year and culminate with student teaching your senior year.
Bradley’s physics education program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce. Education students boast a 100 percent pass rate on Illinois licensure tests and almost all find jobs within six months of graduation. They’re working throughout Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
