Probably the degree would apply to sociology. However, you also need to have the teaching courses and a minor subject. Then, pass the professional and subject tests for your state.

What things do you need to do in order to become a science teacher?

That depends on whether you want to teach Science in elementary school or college. If you want to teach it in elementary school, then you need at least a Bachelor's degree with a teaching certificate... you will have to do some student teaching along the way. If you want to teach at a college, you need a Master's degree at minimum, and it is much easier to get a job if you have a PhD. You do not need a teaching certificate (those are for teaching kids), but there might be minimum experience requirements teaching depending on the school, and so you want to make sure that you do some TA (Teaching Assistant) or other in-classroom work while you are getting your degree, just so you don't come out knowing everything about Science and nothing about teaching.
