Currently the university teachers two physics courses, has a physics minor and plans to recruit students for the minor.  The  membership will hopefully give insight into motivating students and innovative methodologies for teaching physics.

Claflin University has a long tradition of preparing teachers, and has established partnerships and Memorandum of Understandings with various K-12 school districts through our Teacher Education Program. The Teacher Education Program is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). In collaboration with the Teacher Education program, our Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers NCATE accredited middle and secondary program in Mathematics Education that offers physics courses to the pre-service teachers enrolled in the program. Also, Elementary Education pre-service teachers take physical/science courses and hands-on inquiry methods courses in the teaching of science as part of their preparation.
