Department of Chemistry

Department of Chemistry Goals and Outcomes

The Chemistry Department has overriding goals which have an impact on both our graduate and undergraduate programs. These include:  

  • Developing students as successful professionals.
  • Developing students as effective researchers.
  • Maintaining and enhancing the overall quality of the program. 

To meet these goals, we have developed specific expectations (outcomes) for our undergraduate and graduate programs and for our overall program.

Undergraduate Learning Outcomes:

The Chemistry Department Faculty has identified specific objectives of its undergraduate curriculum. The following are the program objectives (i.e. what we expect graduates to accomplish after graduating) and learning outcomes (i.e. what we expect the students to be able to do) that we would like to see our chemistry majors graduate with:

  • Students should have a working knowledge of the main areas of chemistry: organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical.
  • Students should possess critical thinking and problem solving abilities.
  • Students should be able to perform and understand chemical research.
  • Students should be able to describe, both in writing and orally, chemical processes and procedures.
  • Students should be able to work in a chemical or related field.

 

Program Enhancement

To maintain and improve both the undergraduate and graduate programs, the department aims to: 

1. Continue to be competitive by attracting high quality students;

2. Provide effective mentoring that encourages students to graduate in a timely manner;

3. Place graduates in positions in industry and academics

4. Maintain a nationally recognized faculty that is large enough and appropriately distributed across chemistry disciplines to offer students a wide range of fields and expertise.
