We currently have two different tracks for physics education. The first is our traditional undergraduate track that offers a physics degree and minor in education. The 2nd is a graduate level Masters in Education degree. Both of these tracks are now supported by our BEST (Benedictine Educating STEM Teachers) program which is funded in part by the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program. The BEST program allows us to offer grants to student pursuing physics education degrees.
To help students become effective teachers we offer many learning opportunities in and out of the classroom. Students can work as learning assistants in our introductory courses, tutors, or in outreach events sponsored by our local Society of Physics student clubs. The learning assistants are embedded in our introductory courses helping with the lectures and also participate in a seminar that covers current teaching methods. There are also summer research opportunities in physics and physics education.
