To complete degree requirements, the following courses are to be taken at the University of Pittsburgh: Social Science, plus additional credits to make 128 credits.

CHEMISTRY WESLENE TALLMADGE, Ph.D., Chairperson FACULTY: Professors: Weslene Tallmadge. Associate Professors: Matthew Heerboth, Timothy Laher, Lisa Nogaj. Assistant Professors: Betty Jo Chitester, Keith Krise, Christine Saber. Aims and Objectives: Chemistry is required for a wide range of careers as a result of the technology that permeates our society. Science personnel at all levels, from the technician to the creative researcher, rely heavily on the fundamental principles of chemistry. In addition, careers in the many biological and physical sciences require a background in chemistry. Consequently, students at Gannon University take chemistry courses for different reasons. Some are motivated to pursue careers in chemistry such as research, management and sales. Others take both basic and advanced courses in preparation for work in fields such as medical, engineering, law, and environmental science. For example, chemistry is one of the most commonly chosen majors nationally for students wishing to enter medical and health professional schools. Also, students with an interest in Forensic Science may take Criminal Justice courses as technical electives (see advisor). Essentially a student at Gannon will follow a sequence of chemistry courses in line with his or her interests, abilities, and vocational goals. There are several credit hours of elective courses in the chemistry degree program which allows the student to strengthen his or her background in allied sciences such as physics, biology, computer, and mathematics. The department occupies the fourth floor of the Zurn Hall of Science. These spacious facilities contain modern equipment typically found in industrial, academic, and research laboratories. The student, for example, uses the atomic absorption spectrometers, polarograph, refractometer, flame photometer, gas chromatograph, infrared and ultraviolet spectrophotometers, nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometers. Chemistry students also have access to computers capable of extensive molecular modeling. The department offers to its students the advantages of small classes, individual attention, and frequent contact with staff members. Upper level chemistry students are required to participate in independent research and study under the guidance of a faculty member.
