Upon Completion of this Concentration Graduates will be able to:

  • Use currently accepted chemical concepts to investigate problems and ideas presented in advanced chemical study. 
  • Use chemical concepts to evaluate their own science-related concerns such as personal health or careers in science.
  • Use laboratory technology, equipment, and techniques critically and safely to investigate scientific problems using proper scientific methods.

Career Outlook

Graduates of this concentration should transfer to a four year college or university because entry-level employment opportunities in chemistry such as lab or field technicians usually require a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. Professional positions such as engineers, researchers, or college instructors usually require a minimum of a master’s degree.
