Academics

Chemistry (B.S.)

Mission Statement

The mission of the B.S. in Chemistry program is to prepare students for employment in chemistry-related areas and for the pursuit of graduate degrees in chemistry or health-related professional schools by educating them in the fundamental concepts, skills, and techniques of chemistry.

Students who major in Chemistry will:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of chemistry concepts and the ability to apply the knowledge.
  2. Develop the skills necessary for the field of chemistry.

Program Outcomes:

1. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of undergraduate level chemical knowledge by completing a literature review and departmental presentation.
2. Chemistry majors who are sophomores, juniors, or seniors will participate in the chemistry club. 

Program-Level Student Learning Outcomes:

1. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of the field of inorganic chemistry by assessing their ability to identify and apply course content on a normalized exam.|
2. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of the field of organic chemistry by assessing their ability to identify and apply course content on a normalized exam.
3. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of the field of physical chemistry by assessing their ability to identify and apply course content on a normalized exam.
4. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of the field of analytical chemistry by assessing their ability to identify and apply course content on a normalized exam.
5. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of the field of biochemistry by assessing their ability to identify and apply course content on a normalized exam.
6. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of undergraduate level chemical knowledge and apply it to a normalized, cumulative exam.
7. Students with a major in chemistry will exhibit mastery of undergraduate level chemical knowledge by completing a literature review and departmental presentation.
