Chemestry student

Chemistry

Bachelor of Science

Students graduating from the University of Redlands with a B.S. in chemistry will have demonstrated a mastery of chemistry at a level that will allow them to be successful in professional schools or in careers that benefit from knowledge of the physical sciences. This goal is elucidated in outcomes 1-7: 

  1. Master content in organic, physical, analytical, and inorganic chemistry by:
    1. describing chemical and physical structures,
    2. problem solving using mathematical models, and 
    3. analyzing and describing the nature of chemical reactions and energy
  2. Be independent learners, by searching and explaining the chemical literature and other scientific resources in order to teach themselves new concepts 
  3. Measure and characterize properties of matter using a variety of research-level chemical instrumentation, laboratory techniques, statistical and computational methods 
  4. Display effective cooperation with others on projects in various learning and work environments 
  5. Design and conduct original laboratory, computational or theoretical experiments and analyze the results leading to the capstone research project
  6. Clearly communicate experimental motivations and results through oral and written means 
  7. Demonstrate professional integrity, safety, and environmental stewardship
