Secondary Education/Chemistry Majors

Students in the Lynch School of Education who are pursuing an education major leading to certification in teaching chemistry at the secondary level are required to obtain both a major in chemistry in the College of A&S, and a major in secondary education in the Lynch School of Education. Because of the additional requirements of this double program, the chemistry courses required of the major must be taken in the sequence shown below. It is absolutely necessary that prospective secondary ed/chemistry majors take general chemistry in the freshman year. Physics and calculus should also be taken in the first year.
