Chemistry Education

In partnership with the Department of Teacher Education in Marist's School of Social & Behavioral Science, the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry, & Physics can work with students who wish to obtain provisional New York State Certification in Adolescent Education with a specialization in Chemistry.  Doing so can prepare you for a career as a secondary school chemistry teacher.

While no official Chemistry Education degree exists at Marist, students may integrate courses in Chemistry, Education, Psychology, and other areas, and may complete a supervised student teaching experience.

Students interested in Chemistry Education should follow the requirements for either the BA Chemistry or BA Biochemistry degree, and should contact Professor Robert Balogh-Robinson (845-575-3000, extension 2242, or as early as possible during their college career.
