The B.S. Chemistry with 7-12 teaching certification is intended to train future Chemistry teachers. This program has similar requirements as the B.S. Chemistry program, but students generally take fewer cognate courses and are required to take Chemical Education. Students also must take a number of educational courses from the College of Education. Chemistry teachers are always in high demand. Teaching Chemistry at the 7-12 level is also an excellent way to shape the future of the field. A student who graduates with the B.S. Chemistry with 7- 12 teaching certification is also just as qualified to pursue other careers in chemistry, should they decide to not pursue teaching later on in life.
