- Chemistry Education (BA)
*You may not combine the chemistry minor with this major.
With the chemistry minor, you’ll learn to use laboratory techniques, get hands-on experience in conducting experiments, handle sophisticated scientific equipment, and interpret data. These practical skills will strengthen your ability to engage in scientific inquiry and advance in your chosen field.
In this program, you’ll learn to analyze the composition, properties, and transformations of matter, then explore topics such as organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, environmental chemistry, and biochemistry, gaining insights into the intricate workings of chemical systems.
As you progress, you’ll sharpen your critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, learning to approach complex chemical phenomena with precision and analytical rigor. You’ll develop a keen eye for detail, honing your observation skills and attention to scientific principles.
This minor will teach you the fundamental concepts, laboratory techniques, and scientific methodologies that underpin the discipline of chemistry. These valuable skills will complement your major, providing you with a versatile skill set and expanding your career prospects in fields such as research, industry, health care, and academia.
