*There are field experiences in these courses. Students should take only one of these courses per semester. Allow a two-hour block of time for scheduled field experience twice a week.**ED 450 & 451 (Student Teaching and Seminar) may be taken only in the FALL semester of the senior year. Secondary Foreign Language Education majors take ED 450 & 451 in the SPRING semester. ED 450 requires students' full-time participation and no other courses may be taken during this semester without the education advisors' approval. Students must have reliable transportation.

NOTE: It is imperative that students work closely with their advisors to meet all current certification requirements. All students are required to take six credits of English composition (or equivalent) and literature (or the equivalent) and two college level mathematics courses (or the equivalent) prior to being admitted to a certification program. See Section I of the Education Department Student Handbook for explanation of all certification requirements. Other requirements: Students should see Dr. Jones in the education department as soon as possible for information on requirements other than coursework that must be met for certification. Your chemistry advisor and Dr. Jones in the education department maintain the closest watch on the Pennsylvania requirements for teacher certification, and are thus the most appropriate choices to serve as the two academic advisors for students pursuing certification to teach chemistry in secondary school. NOTE: Students with scheduling difficulties (or who wish to spend the junior year abroad) might wish to consider postponing the professional semester (usually the first semester of the senior year) until after graduation. (Juniata graduates are charged only half tuition).

Total POE credit hours = 98 (48 upper level credit hours)

For a delayed start, the student will have to meet with Dr. Jones and the Chemistry advisor. The potential is that the student could finish the Chemistry degree and return for a ninth semester (as a graduate) and complete student teaching.
