Physics/Secondary Education (BS/MEd)

Become a science teacher: Earn an undergraduate degree in physics and a master's degree in secondary education

In Loyola's accelerated master's degree program for science teachers, you'll earn your undergraduate degree in physics and a graduate degree in teaching grades 9-12, plus an Illinois teaching license in secondary education. You'll qualify for a higher salary with a graduate degree, and be able to earn both degrees more quickly than if you enrolled in the two programs separately. Plus, there is a high need for science teachers across Illinois.
