Bonding Chemistry and Education

Students interested in a bachelor’s in Chemistry Education must have two things: a love for chemistry and a passion for teaching youth. With a Chemistry Education curriculum built around in-depth chemistry studies and practical teaching coursework, Taylor will give its Chemistry Education majors a robust education that culminates in a career teaching chemistry at the middle or high school level.

Students in Taylor’s undergraduate Chemistry Education program build a well-rounded foundation of analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry and biochemistry in their chemistry classes. Education classes focus on optimizing lessons for future students’ psychological needs and development, discipline and classroom management in secondary school settings, and ways to approach assessment. Students learn how to make chemistry accessible and understandable to those who are not scientifically minded and learn the best practices for using chemistry equipment in the laboratories.

Launching into Your Classroom

Education majors spend a full semester of their senior year teaching real students locally or internationally. Each Education student teaches at two different schools, preparing you to manage your own classroom after graduation.
