Use Grad MAPs to plan your degree
Declare your program of study (see Enrollment Services and Information). There are no special admission or application requirements for the Chemistry Teaching major, however, teaching majors must meet the Teacher Education admission and licensure requirements (see Department of Teacher Education).
General Education Requirements
Refer to Degree Requirements for Bachelor of Science requirements. The following courses required for the Chemistry major also satisfies general education requirements: CHEM 1210 and CHEM 1215.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Problem-solving skills. Chemistry majors should be competent problem-solvers. They should be able to identify the essential parts of a problem and formulate a strategy for solving the problem. They should be able to estimate the solution to a problem, apply appropriate techniques to arrive at a solution, test the correctness of their solution, interpret their result and connect it to related areas of chemistry.
- Laboratory skills. Chemistry majors should be competent experimentalists. They should be able to design and set up an experiment, collect and analyze data, identify sources of error, interpret their result and connect it to related areas of chemistry.
- Presentation skills. Chemistry majors should be able to express (orally and in writing) their understanding of core chemical principles, the results of experiments, the analysis of problems and their conclusions.
- Computer skills. Chemistry majors should be competent users of basic software, such as word processing, spreadsheet, and graphing programs. Strong presentation and organizing skills are complimented with computer knowledge in graphing and spreadsheets.
