The chemistry program prepares students with an understanding of the fundamental principles of chemistry in a variety of applications. Students learn how chemical knowledge is derived, theorized, and applied in solving problems in everyday life.

A student receiving a degree a degree in this field will be able to:

  • Identify the basic areas of Chemistry that are appropriate to each Chemistry course. This
    content will allow students to continue in successive Chemistry courses, as well as relate the knowledge for matriculation and life-long learning
  • Comprehend and use laboratory skills in synthetic, quantitative and instrumental methods as scientific approaches to gathering and verifying knowledge
  • Demonstrate critical thinking in Chemistry including interpretation, evaluation, explanation and critical inquiry; how to ask appropriate questions, gather relevant information efficiently and creatively, sort through this information, reason logically from this information and come to reliable and trustworthy conclusions
  • Collect, analyze and articulate results clearly and effectively in speech and in writing in an acceptable
    style of presentation.
