Student Learning Outcomes

  • Recognize that all matter is composed of atoms whose inherent periodic properties determine their interactions and combinations into compounds with specific molecular structure, chemical function and physical properties.
  • Explain the various ways that chemists represent and test chemical knowledge in models, theories, mathematical relationships and symbolic notations.
  • Illustrate the principles of safe practices and ethical use of scientific knowledge, materials and procedures, and explain their impact on a diverse society.
  • Demonstrate literacy in concepts underlying fundamental analytical instrumentation and instrumentation techniques used in chemistry and biochemistry.
  • Discriminate between equlibrium and nonequilibrium systems using fundamental thermodynamic laws and kinetics.
  • Demonstrate the ability to generate and collect data and information through designing and safely implementing hypothesis-driven experiments using contemporary methods and techniques.
  • Analyze, interpret, and retrieve data and appropriate literature, to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  • Work effectively, independently and cooperatively to communicate data, concepts, skills and processes to experts and nonexperts in the field.
