As you major in your STEM discipline, you will take one or more focused WVUteach courses per semester to prepare you for the West Virginia certification to teach secondary biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, earth and space science, general science or computer science.
You will not have to give up other post-graduate options, and you will still be able to go to graduate school, other professional schools or into the STEM workforce. 

Once you complete the WVUteach program, you will have fulfilled the qualifications to be eligible for secondary teaching certification by the West Virginia Department of Education in tandem with your four-year STEM degree.
