Accelerated B.S. in Biomedical Sciences and M.A.T. in Science Education

This program intends for students to complete a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences (College of Arts and Sciences) and a M.A.T. in Secondary Science (College of Education) over the span of five years. Students completing this program will be eligible for high school and/or middle school science teacher certification. Completion of this program requires students to complete 12 credits toward the M.A.T. in Science Education during their senior year of their B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. Check the link below to see what are the courses required for the BMS Degree and the MAT in Science Education:

B.S. in Biomedical Sciences/M.A.T. in Science Education

Target Students and Expected Outcomes

The accelerated Bachelor’s to M.A.T. in Science Education program is a collaborative effort between the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Education. This program is an attractive and viable career path for students in the Department of Chemistry’s degree program that results in secondary science teacher certification. Students who complete this program receive the necessary science content and pedagogy coursework to be highly qualified science teachers at the secondary level.

Requirements

For admission to the program a student must:

Have completed 15 hours in the B.S. in Biomedical Sciences major upon applying and thirty (30) semester hours in science (includes twenty-one (21) semester hours in a science concentration (e.g. chemistry, biology, physics) plus 9 hours in minor science content area) with associated laboratory experiences to be fully admitted as a graduate student in the M.A.T. Science Education Program. Evidence of successfully completing all sections of the General Knowledge Test (GKT) is also required for full admission to the graduate program
Have a minimum 3.0 GPA overall; and
Have a minimum undergraduate 3.25 GPA in the major.
Undergraduate Degree Requirements for the B.S. in Biomedical Sciences

All BMS students will complete FLENT and Summer Enrollment requirements as well as graduation requirements listed in the catalog.

Specifically, according to the BOG Articulation Regulation 6A-10.030; earn a minimum of 42 semester hours of upper-level work (courses numbered 3000 and above), therefore, BMS students will take 21 credits of additional 3000+ level coursework in addition to their required major and exit courses listed below. Of this 21 credits, 12 credits will be shared with the MAT Science Education program. The entire undergraduate program will total no more than 120 credits.
