Students who might wish to become a teacher should consult an advisor in the Mathematics and Science Teaching Program (MAST; http://mast.ucdavis.edu) at their first opportunity in order to combine the prerequisites for a credential program with General Education requirements. MAST also offers seminars that give participants required experience in elementary, middle school, and high school classrooms. Students hoping to teach Earth and Planetary Science may prepare by satisfying the requirements for the B.S. degree in Natural Science (http://naturalsciences.ucdavis.edu) or the A.B. degree in Geology (77-79 units) and 36 additional units of science as outlined below. Students may also prepare for the science credential by completing the B.S. degree in Geology (107-111 units) and an additional 24 units as indicated by the asterisks (*) shown in the requirements.
