Chemistry and Biochemistry Fundamentals
Program graduates will have demonstrated a mastery of core concepts and principles in the five chemistry sub-disciplines: analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. They will demonstrate an indepth mastery of biochemistry.
Laboratory Procedures and Practice
Program graduates will be able to perform basic laboratory procedures used in inorganic and small molecule analysis, organic synthesis, and the protein and nucleic acids biochemistry laboratory classes, including good standard lab practices and accurate record keeping. They will also be able to design effective experiments and critically analyze data.
Program graduates will be able to draw on classroom knowledge and laboratory classes to make an individual contribution in a research laboratory.
Program graduates will be able to effectively communicate ideas and experimental results in a variety of formats including written and oral reports and technical graphics. They will also be able to search, read, and understand technical literature in the chemical sciences related to their area of interest.
Career Research and Preparation
Students approaching the end of their course of study will be able to make informed choices among post-graduate opportunities for work or further education.
