Chemistry: Teaching Major BA

Chemistry: Teaching Minor Initial Programs Home

This major satisfies the criteria for an endorsement in chemistry and qualifies students to teach chemistry at the high school, middle, or junior high levels. Students should seriously consider working toward endorsement in a second area, such as biology, general science, Earth science, middle level science, middle level mathematics, physics, or mathematics. Students taking this major are required to apply to the Teacher Preparation Program and complete the Professional Education Program requirements offered through the Department of Educational Foundations and Curriculum, with the exception of EFC 416 and EFC 350 (44 total credits required). Students completing this program are required to demonstrate knowledge, skill, and disposition proficiency through a program portfolio prior to student teaching. Students must pass the WEST-E exam for chemistry to receive a chemistry endorsement.

Students are recommended to take MATH 273 before taking CHEM 381.
