Chemical Sciences Major Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the BS and BA in Chemistry programs, students will be able to:

1. demonstrate working knowledge of each chemistry sub-discipline including:

      a) analytical,

      b) biochemistry,

      c) inorganic,  

      d) organic, and

      e) physical chemistry;

2. solve problems by applying:

      a) the scientific method and 

      b) knowledge of chemistry sub-disciplines;

3. communicate chemical information and scientific findings in oral and written formats to both the general public and scientific communities;

          4. develop responsible and ethical scientific conduct;

          5. work in a team environment in both classroom and laboratory settings;

          6. develop chemical literacy skills; and

          7. demonstrate and apply their understanding of the concepts of safe laboratory practices.

* To discern the BA from the BS Chemistry program, the achievement targets on selected PLOs will be different for the non-ACS approved BA Chemistry program. The BA Chemistry program is ideal for students who select chemistry as a second major; thus, a minimum number of chemistry courses are required to allow for completion of the course requirements for both majors in a reasonable time.
