The Secondary Education Integrated Science program prepares candidates to teach science to students in grades 7 to 12. It includes courses in the three major categories of science identified in the Michigan Curriculum Framework: life, physical and earth/space science. It is a Comprehensive Group Major; no minor is required. Successful completion of this course of study, in the context of other Education program requirements, with a passing grade on the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) Science examination (#94) qualifies the student for the Michigan Department of Education Secondary Provisional Certificate with an endorsement in Integrated Science (certification code DI).
