Chemistry Major with Inclusive Early Childhood/Childhood Education Major


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z

Students seeking initial certification at the early childhood and childhood levels may double major in Chemistry and Inclusive Early Childhood/Childhood Education. Students in this double major are required to have a minimum overall GPA of 2.7 before moving into INCH coursework which typically begins fall semester of the junior year.

Student Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to:

  1. Recognize and apply the fundamental scientific concepts in the core American Chemical Society areas of Chemistry (analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, and physical) that explain chemical behavior at the atomic, molecular, and macroscopic levels.
  2. Conduct scientific inquiry and design experiments using scientific literature.
  3. Safely implement experiments applying appropriate psychomotor skills and techniques.
  4. Draw conclusions based on quantitative, qualitative, or scientific analysis of data/evidence within the context of the methodological design, while recognizing the limits of this data/evidence and analysis.
  5. Evaluate and communicate scientific information through both written and oral forms to scientific and lay audiences.
  6. Apply principles of scientific ethics and academic integrity to ethical issues, inclusion, and respect in science within a diverse, global society.
  7. Recognize how students learn chemistry and apply pedagogical knowledge specific to chemistry teaching and learning. (CHED specific).

 

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. 

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.
