The Post-baccalaureate Chemistry Certificate is designed for certified teachers who hold a bachelor's degree in a scientific area and want to gain the content knowledge necessary to teach chemistry. The program goal is to develop teachers who can provide their students the necessary background to succeed in college-level courses. The courses are designed to provide teachers with a solid academic background in the principles of modern chemistry and the background necessary to develop experiments that may be included in their own courses with the equipment and chemicals available in their schools.
Courses integrate lecture and laboratory. Subjects include environmental chemistry, experimental design, computer use, real-life applications, analytical instrument techniques and lab safety training.
Courses meet in the evenings during the spring and fall terms and you can enter the program in either term.
After you complete this 19-unit program of study, chemistry may be added as an endorsement to your existing teaching certification.
