Requirements for the Five Year Combined B.S. in Chemistry Education/M.S. in Education Option


This program allows a student to complete in five years the requirements for both the B.S. in Chemistry and M.S. in Education degrees with certification to teach chemistry by permitting an undergraduate student to begin graduate coursework in Education during his/her senior year. The program features: (1) an independent faculty-directed research project in chemistry in the summer between the fourth and fifth years, and (2) nine graduate courses in education, including a one semester student teaching experience. A student should apply to the Chair of the Department of Chemistry for admission to this program by the first semester of his/her sophomore year. It is anticipated that the graduates of this program will be highly competitive in the rapidly expanding market for qualified high school chemistry teachers.
