The ability to communicate and respond to the general public is a vital skill for scientists. The goal of the Science education minor is to explore the interactive link between the natural sciences and society and to prepare you to be able to help make science accessible to the general public. You'll complete field experiences in various local settings including undergraduate laboratories, state parks, schools, camps or science museums. The minor will prepare you for a future that may include graduate school, preparation for teaching in the public or private sector, or employment as resource consultants in museums, state parks, or businesses.
