Inspired by science and one's desire to teach others, students in the Broad Field Science Education program are qualified instructors in biology, chemistry, earth and space science, environmental science, and physics. The Broad Field Science program coupled with a Middle-Secondary Education licenses a teacher to teach any science class for grades 5-10, and any basic science course in grades 11-12. Marian graduates interested in teaching high school college preparatory classes, advanced placement courses or elective courses with content depth must also have a concentration in a specific subject area.
