What is Tigers Teach?

Tigers Teach is a program that will teach you about how people learn and how to leverage technology to revolutionize teaching and learning. For a Biology, Chemistry, and Physics major a full Tigers Teach program adds only 8 elective hours (the remainder of the courses satisfy B.S. degree requirements).

If you could qualify for a minor in a science or mathematics you can inquire about how the Tigers Teach program can fit into your degree program.
