The Pennsylvania Department of Education requirements and program of study sequence for students pursuing a double major in Chemistry and Secondary Education not yet been finalized. This section of the catalog will be updated as soon as the requirements are in place. Students interested in this option should speak to their academic advisors and to Chair of the Department of Chemistry as early in their academic careers as possible.
