“Be A Teacher” Day

9:45am

Skilled Chemist, Qualified Teacher

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.

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.
