Teaching Certification for Chemistry Minor

The previously described minor in chemistry must include CHE 250 Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry and be coupled with a secondary teaching certificate in another discipline to qualify students to teach chemistry at the secondary level. Students enrolled in a teaching program other than science who desire teaching certification in chemistry will be required to take ESE 561 Teaching Science in Secondary School. Please note the chemistry minor GPA must be 2.75 or greater, and student teaching in chemistry is required.

The minor cannot be recommended until the secondary teaching program is completed and a recommendation for certification has been processed. Appropriate PRAXIS exams must be completed for each area of certification being recommended.

PRAXIS Examination

Students must register for and take the PRAXIS exam which correlates to their degree program, per College of Education requirements. Refer to Degree Works for exam details. The PRAXIS exam must be taken prior to student teaching.
