February 19, 2019 | 2:40 PM

MacMurray College has announced that it is bringing back two majors, Bachelor of Science degrees in chemistry and elementary education, starting in the Fall 2019 semester.

“We are very excited by the opportunity to, once again, offer majors in elementary education and chemistry,” Beverly Rodgers, provost and vice president of academic affairs and student life, said. “We know that Illinois has a desperate need for elementary education teachers and we have had serious interest from high school students in becoming educators.”

With chemistry, Rodgers said that the college is “reinstating a major that has a long history of producing graduates who have gone on to very successful and productive work lives.” 

She added, “These majors will enrich our campus exponentially.”

The board of trustees voted in January to bring the two majors back to MacMurray. More information can be found on each major's webpage – Elementary Education and Chemistry
