This program is specifically designed for students seeking Minnesota licensure (grades 5-12 or 9-12). Note: more than four years are required to complete the licensure requirements unless students enter the college with advanced standing.
Upon completion of a Chemistry Middle/Secondary Education degree, students will:
- Practice critical reflection in the analysis and improvement of their teaching.
- Demonstrate a sound foundation of content knowledge in the subject areas they teach.
- Understand and implement best practices in their teaching.
- Demonstrate the dispositions critical to effective teaching.
- Practice responsive teaching that meets the diverse needs of all students in their classrooms.
- Collaborate effectively with stakeholders (e.g. parents, K-12 administrators, community members) to enhance student learning.
Students must achieve the following program requirements for all courses listed under Program Requirements and Program Required Courses for the Chemistry Middle/Secondary Education major.
