  • BA Physics - Teaching Concentration
    is easy to get a job With the goal of increasing the number of our majors pursing a career in the teaching of science and physics in middle and high schools the Physics and Astronomy department at Sacramento State has developed the Teacher Preparation Concentration TPC for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Physics Students enrolled in the concentration Are eligible to apply for the Physics Teacher Preparation Scholarship Have the opportunity of working as a teaching assistant at a high school or university astronomy physics class under the supervision of an experienced teacher mentor see below Are prepared to take the three exams that are required by the state of California for a teaching credential in science with emphasis on Physics and will be eligible to enter a teacher credential program The Concentration does not affect the required upper division core units in the existing BA Program in Physics However the Concentration requires additional lower division units in Biology Astronomy and Geology and encourages participation in professional teaching related activities Lower Division 52 Units BIO 1 Biodiversity Evolution and Ecology ASTR 4 Introduction to Astronomy GEO 10 Physical Geology GEO 10L Physical Geology Lab PHYS 30 Science and Pseudoscience MATH 30 31 32 Calculus I II III MATH 45 Differential Equations CHEM 1A 1B General Chemistry I II PHYS 11A 11B 11C General Physics I II III Upper Division 28 29 Units PHYS 105 or MATH 105A Mathematical Methods PHYS 106 Intro to Modern Physics PHYS 110 Classical Mechanics PHYS 115 Electronics and Instrumentation or PHYS 145 Optics PHYS 124 Thermodynamics PHYS 135 Electricity and Magnetism PHYS 175 Advanced Physics Laboratory Physics Elective 8 unit minimum Physics Electives The upper division electives will be customized in consultation with an advisor to meet the needs of the individual students as
