Why Study Chemistry?
Students majoring in chemistry have the opportunity to
engage in research projects with department faculty and
to gain experience with modern instrumental techniques
including gas and liquid chromatography; ultra-violet,
visible, infra-red, Raman, fluorescence, and atomic
absorption spectrophotometry; nuclear magnetic
resonance; and x-ray diffraction. Upon graduation, our
students are knowledgeable, experiences and
independent laboratory workers.
Student Learning Outcomes:
• Demonstrate a broad-based knowledge of major
concepts in the areas of inorganic, organic, analytical
and physical chemistry;
• Demonstrate sufficient preparation in chemistry to
successfully compete in a graduate or professional
program or to realize employment in a chemistry- or
biochemistry-related field;
• Demonstrate a capacity to use modern instrumentation
and classical techniques for the analysis and/or
separation of chemicals and an ability to interpret data;
• Demonstrate effective oral and written communication
skills and critical thinking skills as related to the field of
• Demonstrate knowledge of safe practices in the
handling, usage and disposal of chemicals.
