As a chemistry education major at Huntington University, you will be prepared with both a background in chemistry and in education, allowing career flexibility for either industry or a teaching career or graduate study in chemistry or education.
As an education major, student teaching will not be your first experience in the classroom. From early on, you will gain hands-on training. You will complete a three-week, full-day practicum as well as a number of other observation and participation hours in the actual classroom before you ever begin student teaching. At Huntington, you will gain wide exposure to different grade levels and styles of teaching and learning.
As a graduate, you will be licensed to teach grades 5-12 in chemistry as well as grades 5-9 in middle school science.
