Chemistry Education Option Courses (30-31 cr):

Science & Mathematics Education:

  PSY 202 (4)   SED 413 (3)
  TCE 409 (3) f   Select one course from:
  SED 412 (3) TCE 216; SED 414; TCE 219 f; TCE 253; PSY 350; or HDFS 313
Secondary Endorsement Electives (15)  e
   
   
   
   
Chemistry:
  CH 407 (1)   CH 410 (3)

 

University Baccalaureate Core b (37-38 cr):
Skills (12 cr)
  WR 121 (3)  
  Writing II (3)  
  Speech (3)  
  HHS 231 (2)
plus 1-cr lab
(can be PAC or HHS)
 
 
Perspectives (12 cr)
  Western Culture   
  Cultural Diversity  
  Social Proc. & Institutions     PSY 202
  Literature & Arts  
 
   Difference, Power & Discrimination (DPD) (3 cr) 
 
Synthesis (6 cr)
  Contemp. Global Issues   
  Sci., Tech., & Society   
 
  Biological Science
(4 or 5 cr)
BI 212 strongly recommended
 
Other Requirements:
  180 cr   last 45 cr (or 45 of last 60 cr) completed at OSU
  60 upper division credits   foreign language c

 
Footnotes:
a Meets WIC requirement.  It is strongly recommended that CH 422 be taken as a co-requisite with CH 462.
b  Courses from approved list. For perspectives, no more than two courses from one department.  For synthesis, courses must be from different departments. Transfers from Oregon Community Colleges with an AAOT degree have fulfilled the lower division Bacc Core requirements.
c Requirement can be met by taking two years of one foreign language in high school, two terms of a college-level language (C- or higher) or an approved proficiency test.
d The combination of CH 421, CH 422, and CH 461 is recommended for the strongest background in analytical chemistry, with this option only one inorganic chemistry course is required (CH 411) so that this option adds only 2 credit hours to the total.
e  This is a second academic area (not chemistry).  From suggested course lists on the SED web page  Professional Teacher Education - Science or Mathematics | College of Education | Oregon State University  The courses used to satisfy the electives required for this option must be different from those required in the Chemistry Core.
f   After Winter 2012 SED 409 no longer provides in-classroom experience that is required for HS teaching.
