Skilled Chemist, Qualified Teacher
As a chemistry education major at Huntington University, you will have ready access to high-tech equipment and well-stocked labs. You will use research-grade instruments and computers while gaining comprehensive experience in a series a courses, field experiences and, of course, student teaching during your senior year.
Extensive Classroom Experience
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 in a
multicultural school in Fort Wayne as well as 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.
Huntington students have a very high rate of passage on state education competency tests. Our NCATE-accredited
program is specifically designed for students who wish to obtain an
Indiana teaching license. Reciprocity agreements with other states help
our graduates find employment all across the country.
As a graduate, you will be licensed to teach grades 5-12 in chemistry.
