I'm currently a Physics undergrad(BS at a state school with an unfortunately small program). I know I want my career in Physics to have a lot of emphasis on educating, but I'm on the fence about going on an education program so I can be certified to teach high school physics, or stick with Physics to teach at a college level.
If I do the latter, I'd like to do an Astrophysics program, not sure what specific area yet(I still have 2 years to work that out), but equally important, I'd like to go to a school that puts a lot of emphasis on training students to teach.
I've done a little research already and found these:
Wyoming- They have the CAPER program, a Physics Master's degree with Teaching emphasis, and one of my professor's suggested it.
Arizona- Haven't looked a ton into it, but it was also recommended.
Washington- They seem to be a popular name in Physics education, both for high school and in training graduate Physics students and online seems to reflect that.
Texas A&M- They were one of the founding members of CIRTL and I like the looks of their Astronomy program.
The problem I'm running into is in trying to find schools Physics Education Research groups are the majority of what comes up, which isn't really what I want. I'd rather be doing Astrophysics research while getting trained on how to be a better teacher. So, does anyone have any suggestions for other places to look at, or maybe a better way to go about searching for programs? Thanks!
