Bachelor of Science in Education Chemistry Education

B.S. Ed. in Chemistry Education

The B.S. Ed. in Chemistry Education prepares highly qualified teachers of chemistry. Students are certified to teach high school chemistry once all degree requirements and assessments are passed. Students have an exceptional program of professional preparation including field experiences, theory, and pedagogy courses. The major is well rounded, helping teachers develop a strong foundation of chemical knowledge. Once initial certification is obtained, additional areas of science may be added by passing the Missouri Content Assessment exams, as of present.
