The B.S. Chemistry with 7-12 teaching certification is for future Chemistry Teachers. They have the same Chemistry requirements as the B.S. Chemistry program, but generally take fewer cognate courses. They also must take a number of educational courses from the School of Education and Science Education department. A student who graduates with the B.S. Chemistry and 7- 12 teaching certification is also just as qualified to pursue other careers in chemistry, should they decide to not pursue teaching.
