The Chemistry Department participates in the Honors Program at CSU by requiring honors students who are Chemistry majors (available for all tracks) to register for research courses (either CHM 379 - Independent Study or, with senior status, CHM 489 - Senior Research ) under the guidance of a professor who acts as mentor. Honors chemistry students are required to enroll in at least 2 credit hours of research coursework each semester, for a minimum of 8 credit hours by the time of degree completion. Students are required to begin enrolling in research courses upon declaration of a Chemistry major or upon acceptance into the Honors Program. By getting involved in scientific research as soon as possible, honors students will better understand chemistry’s status as a bench science and have the opportunity to participate in original, ground-breaking laboratory work.
Secondary Teacher Licensure
Students have the option of a dual field licensure in chemistry through CSUteach while earning a B.S. in Chemistry. Licensure programs require coursework from the College of Science and the College of Education and Human Services. Contact the Chemistry adviser for required science courses. Contact the Education Student Service Center and CSUteach for the education courses required for licensure or for information on the requirements for Post-Baccalaureate Secondary Teacher Licensure (216-687-4697 or JH 302).
One teacher preparation track is available, the CSUteach B.S. in Chemistry, Integrated License, Grades 7-12.
