Our BSc (hons) Chemistry with Education course allows you to study a wide range of science subjects in the first year without prematurely committing yourself to any particular specialisation. The first year modules cover all the major areas of chemistry including the chemistry of carbon based compounds, bonding, structure and periodicity as well as atoms and molecules. In your first year you will be encouraged to become involved in extracurricular education and science communication activity across the Science Faculty. The flexibility of the programme encourages you to explore and pursue your own specialist interests within Chemistry and Education as the course progresses. In year 2 you will have four compulsory chemistry modules, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry I, Inorganic Chemistry and Molecular Structure and Energy Levels. You will also complete a compulsory module ‘Education in Action’ in Year 2, which is an observational placement module. You will then have the opportunity to select a further 20 credits from optional modules that cover a diverse range of scientific subjects. These module choices will also include options in Education covering theory and practice. You will take three compulsory chemistry modules in Year 3, Organic Compounds Synthesis and Properties, Physical Chemistry II and Inorganic Compounds: Structure and Function. You will also complete a compulsory module in your final year ‘Education Research’ which will enable you to explore an independent pedagogical project within education. You will also have the option to apply your developing scientific interests through independent research, as you complete a substantial scientific research project in your final year. This degree will enable you to be fully prepared to apply for either Postgraduate Certificate of Education courses, or salaried routes into initial teacher training.
