There is a demand for qualified teachers at the secondary level, and there is an even greater need for quality mathematics and chemistry teachers – teachers who care about students, have a broad and deep understanding of mathematics and chemistry and who are thoroughly professional. The responsibilities are great, but the rewards are even greater.
Western’s Secondary Education program in Chemistry/Mathematics provides many benefits to students, such as close student-faculty contact and relatively small classes. Students in this program have direct access to modern laboratory equipment and instrumentation, as well as opportunities for research work under the direction of a faculty advisor.
This program is designed for those who wish to earn Washington residency certification to teach middle and/or high school and must be accompanied by the professional preparation program in secondary education offered through Woodring College of Education. Courses required for a state teaching endorsement must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better.
