Introduction

UW-Stout is the only university or college in the state of Wisconsin offering a Bachelor of Science degree combining Technology and Science Education, offering students a unique opportunity. Students will participate in a collaborative, interdisciplinary degree program that prepares them as teachers in the overlapping fields of science and technology. Coursework in the program leads to a dual teaching certification in technology education with a major or minor certification in biology, chemistry, or physics. To fulfill the requirements of the program, students will complete technology, science, and education courses. Students will also complete required pedagogical courses specifically in technology and science education. Pre-student teaching experiences in both middle and high school classrooms as well as a semester-long student teaching experience will be required.
