The Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry-Environmental option focuses on a multidisciplinary knowledge of chemistry, biology and geology applied together in environmental studies. It includes some aspects of aquatic chemistry, atmospheric chemistry and geochemistry. Field work and studies of modeling in environmental systems are highly encouraged in this program, which was created for students interested in exploring environmental issues.
The curriculum offers a thorough fundamental knowledge of the major fields of chemistry, such as general, organic, inorganic and biochemistry, as well as many specialized courses including analytical, instrumental, nuclear, toxicology and medicinal chemistry. Each foundation course in analytical, inorganic, organic, biochemistry and physical chemistry focuses on laws, theories and applications in the lecture portion and offers students the opportunity to have hands-on experiences with instruments in laboratories. In addition, the program offers opportunities for students to participate in many emerging research projects under the guidance of a faculty mentor.
