Guilford to Prepare High School Science Teachers
Beginning this fall, Guilford College will offer a program to prepare students to teach high school science.
The N.C. Board of Education approved Guilford’s new 9-12 (secondary) comprehensive science track in the spring. The College’s Curriculum Committee approved the course of study before it was submitted to the state.
A number of Guilford faculty members, including Julie Burke and David Hildreth in the Education Studies Department and Gail Webster and Rob Whitnell in the Chemistry Department, worked for several years to make the new program possible.
Students who wish to become science teachers will complete a dual major in secondary education and a specific track of science, such as biology, chemistry, earth science or physics.
In addition to the new 9-12 comprehensive science track, Guilford offers tracks leading to licensure in elementary K-6, secondary English, secondary Social Studies and K-12 Foreign Language (Spanish or French).
