future science educators


Focusing on science in education

Trinity’s science minor and science education minor prepares future compassionate and inspiring educators with a science focus. Students will go in-depth in all the science disciplines, with courses taught from the Christian perspective. While earning a degree in science education, students will deepen their understanding of social and environmental justice issues, care for creation, and wonder at the order of the universe—and they will be prepared to pass this on to future students.

A science or science in education degree from Trinity prepares graduates to teach science at the primary or secondary level, sharing their knowledge and passion for science with young learners. These minor programs are a perfect complement to Trinity’s other science degree programs, including Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Whatever discipline you are most passionate about, earning a science minor can help enhance your understanding and knowledge.
