Curriculum & Requirements

Add-on Endorsement–General Science

For students who currently possess a Washington State Teaching Certificate.

  • This add-on satisfies the General Science endorsement and allows teachers to teach any science grades 5–12.
  • To improve their marketability as science teachers, students may wish to complete this option in addition to their BAE in Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Space Science or Physics.

Individuals with an endorsement in one of the sciences can receive a General Science Endorsement if they are successful in passing the General Science West E exam. However, we recommend taking the following courses in order to increase the likelihood of passing the exam.
