The Chemical Education major combines the rigorous requirements of the Chemistry BA program with content-specific pedagogy to prepare students interested in teaching chemistry at the secondary level. The major offers a degree in the discipline with multiple field experiences in diverse classroom settings and culminates in a full-time teaching internship.
Upon graduation from the program, students are endorsed for Full Teacher Certification by the State of Florida's Department of Education, which allows them to teach 6th to 12th grade throughout the state. Students may work with the Department's faculty members, many of whom are interdisciplinary in their training and interests and teach in several fields, in their research labs. Some present the result of their research at national conferences and publish them in chemistry journals.
