Adolescence Chemistry, MST

30 credits

NYSED 25526/25533

This clinically-rich master’s degree program in adolescence chemistry prepares candidates to teach chemistry as a content-area subject in grades 7 through 12. Graduates of the program qualify and are endorsed for New York state teaching certification in Chemistry 7–12.

In addition to the general requirements for study in the Graduate School of Education and for initial teacher certification programs, candidates for the adolescence chemistry program must have an earned degree in chemistry (or a related field, for example, applied chemical science), with a minimum of 30 credits in chemistry coursework. This content must include study in the following areas: principles of chemistry, including concepts in inorganic, organic, analytical, physical, and biochemistry.

Otherwise qualified candidates who lack coursework in a specified area may be admitted conditionally but must make up the content deficit prior to completion of the program. An interview, as well as attendance at an Adolescence MST information session, is recommended.
