Course Sequences

WVUteach is a unique collaboration between the Eberly College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Education & Human Services. Students earn degrees in their content areas (e.g. biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics) along with their eligibility for a teaching certification within 4 years. They take challenging science and mathematics coursework leading to a degree in a STEM major.

The curriculum is designed, so a variety of degree plans for STEM majors can lead to different licensures and STEM degrees. Degree plans can be customized for different student needs.
