Chemistry Education Bachelor's Degree

As a student of Northern's chemistry education bachelor's degree program, you’ll learn to operate a wide range of modern instruments, including ultraviolet visible and infrared (UV and IR) spectrophotometers, gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrophotometer, among others.

You’ll benefit from NSU's small class sizes and personal attention from highly qualified professors. As a chemistry education major at NSU, you're encouraged to explore individual interests and work closely with professors on research projects. You may have the chance to present your research at national or regional meetings, or even publish your work in scientific journals.




Most chemistry education graduates work as secondary school teachers. Others work as instructors in non-educational settings; as corporate trainers, or in accounting or sales and marketing-related jobs.

For more information on careers in your major or help choosing a major, contact the NSU Career Center.


Undergraduate research or internships provide opportunities for you to work closely with professors - in their labs and with their equipment - in a way not available in an ordinary classroom or lab setting. You’ll have the chance to do original chemistry research on your own, under faculty mentorship. Many NSU students find that a summer undergraduate research project or internship helps crystallize their career goals.
