Heat, Electricity, and Magnetism-Calculus Based
Chemistry majors must also successfully pass a comprehensive exit exam during the Spring of the senior year and complete a senior thesis.
Major in Chemistry (Teacher Certification Track)
The Chemistry major (Teacher Certification) prepares students for teaching in the secondary school and offers a relevant series of courses in chemistry and related sciences to students who are interested in exploring educational career possibilities in chemistry. Science requirements for this major are the same as those for the liberal arts Chemistry major. In addition, students must take sufficient professional education courses for certification.
