Professors Amaro and Steffan (chair) Mission Statement The mission of the Chemistry Department at University of Jamestown is to provide a strong chemistry foundation for students majoring in chemistry and for students pursuing a career in health professions which require some chemistry knowledge and to help provide a strong science background for students pursuing teaching careers. Intended Student Learning Outcomes for the Chemistry Major

1a. Chemistry and biochemistry majors will demonstrate a broad-based foundation that will allow highly competitive candidacy for industry, education and graduate school in chemistry, biochemistry or other related interdisciplinary fields such as environmental chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, food science, toxicology and forensic chemistry. 1b. Chemistry and biochemistry majors, biology majors, chemistry minors and others taking chemistry will demonstrate a strong chemistry background for careers in professional fields such as medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, clinical laboratory science and other related alliedhealth professions. 1c. Non-science majors will demonstrate a basic knowledge of chemistry and its importance in the world today. 2. Majors will demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving abilities. 3. Majors will demonstrate an understanding of the importance of chemistry as it relates to the other sciences, to the environment, to industry, and to life in general. 4. Majors will demonstrate the skills necessary for communicating scientific information. 5. Majors will demonstrate the skills necessary to develop and conduct research. The student can elect to either major in chemistry or biochemistry. The student who is interested in pursuing graduate work in chemistry or a government or industrial job may elect the chemistry major. The student interested in pursuing biochemical research, a career in the health profession (medicine, pharmacy), a career in the food or pharmaceutical industry may elect the biochemistry major. A grade of C- or above must be earned in all courses that are required in a major or a minor. Requirements for the Chemistry Major Dept.
