Chemistry Education Certification

The Chemistry Education program at Mercyhurst University is a two-step process designed to give students a strong content knowledge before they master the pedagogical tools necessary to become expert teachers at the secondary level. Students interested in the program will first pursue a BA or BS degree in Chemistry. (see current Course Catalog for details)
