THE SOLUTION TO A REWARDING CAREER IN THE SCIENCES

Chemistry is fundamental to life. It touches almost every aspect of human existence. 化学技术通过为健康问题提供解决方案,丰富了人类和动物的生活质量, food, materials and energy usage. 博彩平台推荐的化学课程将帮助你成为解决方案的一部分. With a solid foundation of scientific knowledge, as well as hands-on training in analytical thinking and problem solving, you’ll be prepared for a science-related career in business, healthcare or teaching, 或进入医学院或化学及相关领域的研究生学习.

The B.A. 化学是一个“中心科学”学位,因为你学到的不仅仅是化学的概念和研究, but also biological concepts that connect all of the physical, life and applied sciences. 该计划提供了有机基础的全面教育, inorganic and analytical chemistry, 与生物研究相结合,与化学的各个领域相交叉. Along with a firm understanding of scientific information, you’ll acquire specific skills important to life, and to industry. You’ll learn to identify small details, create hypotheses for problem solving, analyze data and communicate effectively both verbally and in writing.

这个基础学位为你提供了广度和深度的理解,为你从事各种各样的职业做好准备, creating viable pathways for students attracted to the sciences. This an ideal course of study if you wish to enter medical school, dental school, veterinary science or pursue graduate studies in chemistry. You can also pursue science-related opportunities in research and development; materials science; consumer products such as food and cosmetics; environmental, commercial or industrial laboratories and more.

Professional Chemistry Training

  • The B.A. 化学课程将为你进入医学院或化学及相关领域的研究生学习做准备.
  • The program provides training in scientific analysis and problem solving, as you draw conclusions from experimental observations.
  • 教授们带来了化学和生物学领域的丰富经验.
  • Your learning will be highly individualized as you engage in direct, high-level contact with your professors.
  • 你将通过实验练习进行动手学习, using high-level instrumentation.

In your chemistry program, 你将向在化学和生物领域拥有丰富经验的教授学习, including industry research, forensics and biochemistry relating to environmental factors. 你也可能有机会与参观我们校园的行业专家一起工作,并为课堂进行动手实验.

This is a program focused on scientific knowledge and research. 所有教师都在多个领域拥有丰富的科研经验.  你将学习创建一个假设,并通过实验室实验来创建一个跨越各种化学应用的化学知识库.

在整个课程中,你将获得解决问题等职业技能, analysis and critical thinking. 您将学习实验室流程、科学探究和团队合作方面的技能. And, you’ll acquire critical communication skills, learning to effectively share and explain technical knowledge with others.

The Center for Science and Technology

博彩平台推荐最新的校园建筑是我们的科学技术中心,也被称为“STEAM大楼”.” Here, you’ll engage in experiential laboratory exercises, 使用高级仪器,直到研究生水平的课程才在其他程序中使用. Instrumentation includes GC-MS (Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry), HPLC(高效液相色谱)和FTIR(傅里叶变换红外光谱), “Bod Pod”(分析体育活动对人体的影响)和DNA序列分析仪. 您还将学习解剖学和生理学的分子和细胞水平使用解剖表, 一台六英尺高的水平计算机和虚拟尸检机,使用数字化的人体,专门用于科学研究. TU是全国少数几所拥有这种机器的学校之一.

Active learning is an integral part of the B.A. Chemistry program. Attentive faculty work closely with students, who benefit from our program’s smaller, more personalized class sizes. 我们是一种体验式的学习方法,因为课程和实验室涉及科学过程的实际应用. Engaging in an active, hands-on program, you’ll:

  • 参与使用高科技、最先进仪器的实验室研究.
  • Use scientific software and interpret data from laboratory procedures.
  • 积极练习通过实验报告交流科学信息.
  • Participate in a 150-hour required internship.
  • Share knowledge learned through peer-to-peer discussions, presentations and interaction with people in the field.
  • 目前该领域的研究从科学期刊向同学学习.
  • 是否有机会在教授的指导下完成个人选择的研究项目,并在国家会议上发表.
  • Collaborate with other students in labs, learning to communicate and work with people different than you.
  • Have the opportunity to visit and engage with different types of labs.
