GeauxTeach STEM


Enhance your degree with GeauxTeach STEM

GeauxTeach STEM allows students to pursue an undergraduate degree in biology, chemistry, mathematics, or physics AND earn secondary teaching certification at the same time. No additional hours are required since elective hours are used for education courses. Upon completing the GeauxTeach STEM program, you will have a BS degree in science or math AND be both certified and highly qualified to teach in that subject area. Although teaching is the goal for many of our students, some choose to pursue this concentration to become a distinguished communicator and to set themselves apart from other students who plan to enroll in graduate or professional schools.

The typical GeauxTeach undergraduate student is majoring in biology, chemistry, physics, or mathematics and is a freshman or sophomore student. This student is
on track in their degree area and wants to spend their final semester conducting a traditional student-teaching experience where they work with a mentor to hone their teaching skills before they graduate and enter the real world. This option is for serious students who feel strongly about earning and using their teaching certification.


The typical Alternative Certification student is majoring in any STEM related field and is typically a junior or senior student who is just realizing they may want more options after they graduate. This student doesn't want to extend their graduation date and is comfortable doing some extra courses to gain practical and theoretical experience in the field of education before committing to the profession. This student does not have a traditional student teaching experience, but instead enrolls in graduate classes to get support while teaching in a class
of their own.

Computer Science

The typical GeauxTeach STEM Alternative Certification for Computer Science option is a student majoring in Computer Science who might like the option of transitioning into teaching immediately after graduation or at some later time in their career. Students in this pathway take the CS with a Second Discipline: Education concentration offered in the Division of Computer Science and Engineering. As with the general Alternative Certification route, teacher certification requirements are completed following graduation in a 1-year paid internship..
