Return to ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z Return to: ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z

The Bachelor of Science program in chemistry with inclusive adolescence education prepares students for the initial certification requirements of the New York State Department of Education for Adolescence Education. Students who have completed all baccalaureate requirements with a minimum GPA of 2.7 in each required course of their certification program, who have demonstrated professional competence, and who have successfully completed the New York State teacher certification examinations will be eligible for initial certification.

Graduates of this program are also prepared for advanced studies in chemistry, or employment in chemical laboratories.

 

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students completing courses in CAS at Nazareth College will communicate effectively through critical reading, writing, and oral presentation skills.
  2. Students completing the program in chemistry or biochemistry at Nazareth College will demonstrate the ability to communicate the concepts and results of experiments through effective written and oral communication skills.
  3. Students completing the program in chemistry or biochemistry at Nazareth College will be able to understand the objective of experiments, properly execute experiments, and accurately record and analyze results.
  4. Students completing the program in chemistry or biochemistry at Nazareth College will be able to demonstrate mastery of core principles within the major sub-disciplines of chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic and physical (SLO #1 for dept).

Core Curriculum Requirements


All Nazareth students complete Core Curriculum coursework as part of their degree requirements. The Core provides a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences while guiding students to pose and explore their own intellectual questions. See Academic Policies and Procedures  for specific core curriculum requirements. 

Required Courses for Chemistry Majors with Inclusive Adolescence Education


In addition to the 55 credit core listed above, all Chemistry majors with Inclusive Adolescence Education are required to take the following:

  • Any science course, with a laboratory, other than CHM or PHY

Elective Courses for Chemistry Majors with Inclusive Adolescence Education


Four credits of upper division chemistry electives are required. Two credits of laboratory are required in order to obtain American Chemical Society approval.

Chemistry Senior Experience


This course seeks to integrate the technical aspects of chemistry with the ability to communicate scientific information effectively. To achieve this goal, students are assigned a topic of current scientific interest that combines chemistry with other disciplines in order to answer some fundamental question. Students demonstrate their ability to independently research and communicate their findings in a professional manner to an audience of their peers and faculty.

Foreign Language Requirement


  • Students must complete three credits in a Modern Foreign Language.

Required Courses for Inclusive Adolescence Education


See Education: Initial Teacher Certification in Inclusive Adolescence Education  for course requirements.

  • Note - students who are majoring in a Foreign Language with Inclusive Adolescence Education complete their study abroad semester in spring of the sophomore year.
