Where Might I Find A Job After Graduating From This Program?

There is and has been a nationwide shortage of secondary science teachers, particularly physics teachers. There are more positions than qualified physics teachers in most states, including Arkansas. While this program is primarily geared toward those who wish to teach at the junior or senior high levels, opportunities may also exist within the realms of public education and private tutoring to adults and/or children.
