The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry prepares students for excellence in graduate or medical school, and employment in the chemical, biotechnological, or pharmaceutical industries. Students learn a wide array of topics in Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. The program emphasizes the “hands-on” nature of chemistry in laboratory courses, giving students the tools that chemists need to pursue research. They also learn how to write scientific reports, analyze data, and place these results in a broader scientific context. Accomplished majors are encouraged to pursue independent research with a professor, and to present their work internally and at national meetings. Chemistry is commonly considered to be the "central science." So much of our modern life is based in chemistry that most people take it for granted that new technologies will always be available. However, without new discoveries in chemistry there would be no new medicines, pesticides, or consumer electronics. Program Goals: After completing either program, students should: know how to write a scientific report, analyze data, and place these results in a broader scientific context know material from foundational and in-depth course work in 4 out of 5 subdivisions of chemical research: Analytical Chemistry; Biochemistry; Inorganic Chemistry ;Organic Chemistry; and Physical Chemistry have laboratory skills in a broad range of subdivisions through laboratory experience in 4 of 5 chemistry subdivisions have problem-solving skills such as the ability to develop testable hypotheses; design and execute experiments and data analysis be able to research chemical literature have laboratory safety skills be able to communicate their knowledge of chemistry as developed in the capstone courses be able to work effectively as part of a team as developed through their laboratory courses. Careers: The Philadelphia region has the largest concentration of chemical and pharmaceutical companies in the world. While many of our graduates go directly into high paying jobs in the chemical industry or onto careers in law or business, a significant portion go on to medical school, dental school, and prestigious graduate programs.
