New Mexico Secondary Science Certification and Exam Requirements
LICENSE AND EXAM REQUIREMENTS
Secondary Science Certification Available: Secondary Science, Grades 7-12
Graduates of a WGU science grades 5-12 teacher preparation program will be eligible for grades 7-12 science teacher licensure in New Mexico, which will allow them to teach in any single subject science classroom in that grade range. New Mexico does not offer certification in science specialization areas (i.e. biology, chemistry, physics), so WGU students in any science specialization program will be eligible for this license.
