We recommend obtaining a Education Minor (18 credits) which can shorten the teacher training program considerably through transfer credits.

^Take either this sequence including MATH- ^or this sequence, depending on interest.
*Optional, but recommended courses.
One additional PHYS or ASTR course at 200+ (3 credits) also needs to be taken Juinior or Senior year.
Other physics courses can also be taken. Consult with your advisor.
ASTR 101  and ASTR 101L  can be taken other semesters. Make a plan with your advisor.
For those who want to study abroad, fall of junior or senior year is the best option (choosing the ASTR 221 /ASTR 252  sequence).
