Student Learning Outcomes
- Students will demonstrate knowledge of Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Equilibrium, Structure of Materials, Quantum Mechanics, Synthesis, Reactivity of Substances and Green Chemistry.
- Students will use critical thinking by demonstrating the ability to recognize the components of a problem, formulate a strategy to solve the problem, apply comprehensive scientific knowledge to execute a solution and then evaluate the effectiveness of the solution.
- Students will demonstrate communication skills reflective of professional standards in chemistry consistent with the American Chemical Society.
- Students will demonstrate discipline-specific core laboratory and calculation- based skills related to the synthesis and characterization of compounds and common methods of chemical analysis.
- Students will demonstrate readiness for post-baccalaureate entry into a workforce or advancement (entrance) into graduate or professional programs in Chemistry.
- Students will demonstrate global perspective in their understanding of how chemistry affects economics, health, technology and the environment.
