Adolescence Education: Chemistry, B.S.

Sample Degree Map

The Adolescence Education: Chemistry, B.S. degree prepares students to teach Chemistry to middle and high school students, and leads to New York State certification. While at Fredonia, degree candidates take courses in Chemistry and Education. Education courses include field experiences in local public schools and the final semester is spent as a student teacher in two different schools.

The State University of New York at Fredonia is committed to doing our part to provide each student a clear path to graduation. This four-year degree plan is a sample map for fulfilling requirements in the major, the Fredonia Foundations (FF), and other supporting courses. The pathway that you take to your degree may differ somewhat from this illustration, depending on where you start and the detours and side trips you may take along the way. If you are committed to completing your degree in four years, we encourage you to consider signing up for the Fredonia in 4 program.
