This program is designed for students interested in a strong and comprehensive preparation in chemistry and other related sciences. This is especially recommended for students who plan to pursue graduate studies in chemical sciences, including analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, medicinal, pharmaceutical, polymer, and physical chemistry, as well as those who are interested in pursuing further studies in chemical engineering or medical and allied medical fields. Students completing this program will receive a certificate from the American Chemical Society.
This program would serve primarily students who plan to either become professional biochemists or pursue other careers that would require a strong background in biochemistry. Those who complete this program may either directly enter the work force in chemical, pharmaceutical, and related industries, or pursue graduate or professional studies. The graduate programs that are most commonly selected include biochemistry, chemistry, biochemical engineering, pharmaceutical sciences, forensic sciences, environmental sciences and toxicology. The professional fields of study include health sciences such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, or other related areas. Students completing this program will receive a certificate from the American Chemical Society.
Student Learning Goals
Upon completion of the requisite courses for a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry degrees, the students will have:
- applied knowledge in the fundamental areas of chemistry,
- applied laboratory knowledge and hands-on skills,
- written legible and complete experimental records,
- communicated chemical information in both written and oral forms, &
- produced research under a chemistry faculty's supervision.
