The B.A.Sc. in teaching earth and space sciences is offered by the Department of Education in conjunction with the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences. This major is for students who plan to teach all science areas in grades 5 through 8 and teach earth and space sciences in grades 9 through 12. Students have the option of also completing the environmental education emphasis with this major. This emphasis enhances the student's major by integrating environmental education into formal (pre-K-12), as well as non-formal education settings such as parks and nature centers. The emphasis in environmental education is noted on the student's diploma.
