What makes ORU’s Science Education program stand out?
The College of Education emphasizes the fact that there is no substitute for thorough preparation in the subject matter. Each specialized, subject-area teacher must complete a major as presented by the respective content area department. Accordingly, the science education major will participate in a variety of classes in biology, ecology, chemistry, human anatomy, physiology and physics as well as professional educational courses and seminars. Instruction in the science education major meets the State of Oklahoma specific requirements for certification in biology, chemistry, physics and general or physical science.
Students seeking licensure to teach at the secondary levels have two options: completion of the science education major, which leads to standard certification, or completion of any other major in the biology, chemistry or engineering departments, which can lead to alternative certification.

As a university, we meet the highest accreditation standards set by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
