M.S. Secondary Education Chemistry Concentration
Are you a high school teacher looking to boost your qualifications to teach dual credit courses in chemistry?
Our M.S. Ed. program offers a concentration in chemistry that provides coursework for high school teachers seeking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of this field in order to satisfy Higher Learning Commission (HLC) requirements for instructors of dual-credit courses. The program requires 30 credit hours of graduate-level work.
The coursework focuses on teaching advanced methods and skills in chemistry through special courses in areas such as inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, organic spectroscopy and more.
It meets the required accreditation outcomes, prepares candidates with required research skills, guarantees that curriculum needs are met, and adds the recognition of a concentration in mathematics to the M.S.Ed. degree.

Note: Education students cannot use 400-level courses toward dual credit teaching requirements. All coursework applied to your Master’s degree must be completed within 6 years. No more than 9 hours of graduate coursework taken prior to admission to the Master’s program will be counted toward the degree. Consult with your program advisor each semester or at least annually. Program requirements may change and you may be subject to new guidelines if you do not take coursework for more than one year. If petitioned and approved, up to 6 credit hours (grade of B or higher) may be allowed from other institutions; up to 15 credit hours may be allowed from other IU campuses. Petition forms are available from the School of Education. This check-sheet does not reflect the requirements of any other IU campus or licensing areas at IU Southeast.
