This emphasis combines the degree and credential into a four year integrated teacher education program. The program is designed to qualify the student for a chemistry degree and a preliminary single subject teaching credential in science: chemistry.
A minor is not required with this major.
The emphasis in integrated teacher education program (ITEP-SS) is an impacted program. To be admitted, refer to the specific impaction criteria for the major.
Passing the Writing Placement Assessment with a score of 8 or above before taking TE 405W* and earn a grade of C (2.0) or better. See “Graduation Requirements” section for a complete listing of requirements.
Additional Requirements for Subject Matter Preparation Certification
Certification of subject matter competency by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry requires completion of all preparation for the major and major courses with the required grades. (At most one course with a C- or lower among the courses listed under preparation for the major, and at most one course with a C- or lower among the courses listed under the major is permitted. If a course is repeated, the highest grade will count.) Certification must be achieved before student teaching.
ITEP Admission Requirements
Students apply for admission to the chemistry major with an emphasis in integrated teacher education program (ITEP-SS) during the spring semester of their sophomore year. Students who qualify for admission the summer prior to their junior year must have a GPA of 2.67 or better, passing scores on the CBEST, a documented field experience, and complete program application.
