The Physics Department offers a special option for undergraduate students who wish to pursue a Physics major and a career in teaching.  The Adolescent to Young Adult (AYA) Teacher Education Program in Physical Sciences prepares CWRU students to receive an Ohio Teaching License for grades 7-12.  Students declare a second major in Education, which involves 34 hours in Education and practicum requirements, and complete a planned sequence of physics courses within the context of the B.A. Physics major.  The program is designed to offer several unique features not found in other programs and to place students in mentored teaching situations throughout their teacher preparation career.  This small, rigorous program is designed to capitalize on the strengths of CWRU’s Physics Department, its Teacher Education Program, and the relationships the University has built with area schools.
