Physics teacher with his class

Physics 7-12 Teaching Subject Endorsement

The faculty in the University of Nebraska at Kearney's Department of Physics believe in a “hands-on” science experience. In the program, you are provided with the best laboratory experience possible through access to state-of-the-art equipment and participation in active undergraduate research programs.

After completing the requirements, you will be qualified to teach physics in grades 7-12 at middle or high school systems—or you can pursue an advanced academic degree. Education degrees are a cornerstone of UNK, therefore, it has always had an excellent reputation for producing Nebraska’s top teachers.

“The people who I met and learned from really directed me down this path and I am thankful for them. I really appreciate my experience at UNK.” Other highlights for Gallegos during her time at UNK were using top-quality lab equipment, having fun hands-on lab opportunities, experiencing a family atmosphere on campus and joining Society of Physics Students."
