Demand for Physics or Earth/chem HS

  1. Jul 14, 2015 #1
    Hi all,

    I'm currently attending a university and have a great desire to teach HS Science. I'm a year late in making this decision (flirted briefly with engineering) and have two equal-length paths. I could obtain a degree in applied physics while completing all of the teaching requirements or I could obtain one in Earth Space Science teaching with a minor in chemistry teaching. I love all science, although not the life sciences, and was wondering what path would give me the best chance of landing a job.

    Thank you,

    It depends on where you live. In some places, physics teachers are in great demand.
