The Chemistry I-MAT Program integrates a Masters of Arts in Teaching with the BS in
Chemistry degree. Students accepted into the I-MAT program begin taking graduate level
classes in education starting their junior year (students should apply to the program
before then). With just one extra year (5 yrs total), students are able to graduate
with both a BS in Chemistry as well as the MAT degree. The I-MAT program is thus a
streamlined approach to obtaining a MAT degree. The accelerated program was created
to help attract students into the teaching profession.
Chemistry I-MAT Curriculum
This track is designed for students who wish to obtain a chemistry degree and secondary
education certification to teach high school chemistry. Students will complete both
the requirements for the chemistry degree as well as a variety of education courses.
Careful planning allows completion of the coursework in 4 years with a teaching apprenticeship
serving as a capstone in an additional semester.
