Teacher Certification

Students wishing to teach chemistry in the secondary schools can obtain provisional certification by completing the requirements below. The procedure to be followed for admission to the professional sequence of courses is described in the Education section of the catalog. Candidates in all education programs are required to demonstrate competence in a language other than English (American Sign Language, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish). Proficiency requirement met by the following:

  • Fredonia Placement Exam determination of Fredonia Foundations courses 100 and 110 in the same World Language or course 110 (or higher) in World Language.
  • Proficiency may also be fulfilled by qualifying AP, IB, CLEP Exam scores or transferred courses of Elem I and Elem II of same language, as verified by Registrar’s Office.

The General Education foreign language requirement meets the certification requirement.

A candidate who receives a Satisfactory standing in the Student Teaching placement must also receive a passing grade in their co-requisite Seminar/Methods course to advance.
