Earth Science: Adolescence Education qualifies students for initial certification by New York State to teach earth science in grades 7 through 12.

The program includes a cadre of lower-division earth science courses and a cadre of upper-division earth science courses. The upper-division earth science courses could be more properly considered “geology” courses.

Once a student has matriculated, all major requirements must be taken at The College of Saint Rose unless formal written permission to do otherwise is given by the advisor and Dean of the School of Mathematics and Sciences with consultation of the instructor.

* Students who do not take CSC104 must take EPY 370

 

** SED 225 should be taken with an instructional methods or curriculum course

 

*** ESC220 will generally be taught in either the fall or spring semester, but not both. It should be taken in the fall, if offered.

 

All 4-credit science courses have a required laboratory component.with a curriculum or teaching methods course.

 

Liberal education requirements total 41 credits. Requirements of the major satisfy 10 of these credits [mathematical reasoning (L07) 3 credits, Behavioral and Social Sciences (L11) 3 credits, and laboratory science (L09) 4 credits]. Therefore the total additional Liberal Education credits required for ESAE majors is 31. ENG 105 (4 credits) and 2 credits of Physical Education satisfy an additional 6 credits of the liberal education requirement.
