Pathway 1: Double Major Pathway for Undergraduate STEM Majors
Pathway 1 is for undergraduate STEM majors who commit to becoming a Noyce Scholar during their freshman or sophomore year and pursue a double major in a STEM content discipline and in secondary (Grade 7-12) science or mathematics education. Although they are expected to apply and commit to becoming a Noyce Scholar during their freshman and/or sophomore year, Pathway 1 students will receive Noyce funding during their junior and senior years (last 2 years) and will obtain their teaching licenses upon completing the senior year.
The Urban Cohort experience is integrated into Pathway 1 candidates’ undergraduate teacher education curriculum. Applicants will review the plan of study for the STEM discipline area they are interested in with Dr. Nazan Bautista (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the time of their application. You can also review the plans of study.
Who Should Consider Pathway 1?
Undergraduates majoring in a STEM field (Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Biology, Engineering, Statistics, Mathematics, etc.) at Miami.

- Pathway 1 applicants must be majoring in one of the STEM fields.
- Pathway 1 Noyce Scholars must obtain both a STEM degree (Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts) and a science/mathematics teacher education degree (Bachelor of Science) upon graduation.
- Pathway 1 applicants must be United States citizens, nationals, or permanent resident aliens (green card holders).
- Pathway 1 applicants must commit to
teachfor 4 years in a high-needs district upon successful completion of their double major programs.
