Chemistry Education, Physical Chemistry, B.A.

The goal of UMBC's B.A. in Chemistry Education is to provide a curriculum that, in four years, gives students a solid foundation in chemistry and also the coursework necessary for certification to teach chemistry at the secondary level. It is considered crucial that graduates be fully-trained chemists, capable of working in a range of technical positions outside of secondary education. The curriculum also seeks to expand the scientific background/perspective of graduates by requiring courses in other scientific disciplines as well as a science history course.

The Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry Education, Physical Chemistry consists of at least 105 credits distributed as follows:

*These courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. An overall C average must be maintained in required major courses.

Other (22-23 credits)
