Students who wish to teach chemistry in Ohio public high schools can pursue the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry. Upon completion of this undergraduate degree program in the College of Science and Mathematics, students then need to complete the Professional Educators Program (PEP) Master of Education degree (M.Ed.) through Wright State’s College of Education and Human Services. Graduates of the B.S. in chemistry and the M.Ed. Professional Educators Program are then eligible to seek licensure from the Ohio Department of Education in chemistry or chemistry in combination with another science field depending on the content of the undergraduate curriculum.
The Adolescence to Young Adult Chemistry Licensure Program is based on an undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry.

Students must apply for admission to Wright State University.
Declaring your Major
To apply for admission in the College of Science and Mathematics, students must fill out a “Change of Major” form and declare their area of emphasis (this can be done online through WINGS Express). Often students who have declared “chemistry” as their area of interest on their Wright State admissions applications will be automatically sent to the College of Science and Mathematics from University College when entrance requirements are met. If this is not the case, students must fill out a change of major form and declare one of the following areas:
- Chemistry (B.A.)
- Chemistry (B.S.)
- ACS Certified (B.S.)
- Chemistry Education Concentration (B.S.)
- Dual Major (B.S.)
