Chemistry Education Pathway

Become certified to teach Chemistry at the high school or middle school level in three steps:

Step 1: Earn a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Step 2: Earn a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) from Missouri State

  • A 3.0 GPA or better in your bachelor’s degree discipline area is required for admission to the MAT program.

Step 3: Receive certification/licensure in the state of Missouri to teach high school and middle school

  • In order to teach dual-credit science courses, which result in both high school and college credits for your students, you will need 18 graduate hours in a science discipline. We offer a Graduate Certificate in Science Content. It’s available in an accelerated option, so you can add just a few more credit hours to your degree pathway to earn this certificate along with your BS and MAT degrees.
