Concentration in Chemistry
A concentration in Chemistry, as a part of an undergraduate degree, takes the student beyond the capabilities afforded by the Chemistry minor and provides enhanced exposure to chemical concepts, processes and systems. Professors are committed to helping students pursue God’s call on their lives and their personal academic aspirations in the various disciplines of chemistry.
The Evangel University Department of Natural and Applied Sciences is dedicated to the spiritual, academic and social growth of every student. The department’s purpose is to provide an excellent scientific education that is thoroughly integrated with the University’s emphasis on the development of strong Christian character. Within this framework, students must contend with new scientific, social, ethical and technological challenges. Students learn to communicate technical concepts clearly and effectively and exhibit analytical thinking and problem-solving skills.
A concentration in Chemistry provides a more extensive foundation, compared with the Chemistry minor, in the fundamentals of chemistry, allowing students to be able to understand and critically evaluate chemical and other scientific information. It facilitates the ability to function at a high level in the laboratory as well as to participate in public policy discussion and decisions. Students are provided with practical experiences through laboratory experimentation in the various chemistry courses.
Each of Evangel's academic programs is made up of a set of core curriculum, program requirements and electives. The courses listed below are just a small sample of courses that might be taken as a part of this specific program.
|General Chemistry||Topics include chemical equilibrium, acid-base theories, acid-base equilibria, solubility equilibria, chemistry in the atmosphere, entropy and free energy, electrochemistry, the chemistry of metals, nonmetallic elements and their compounds, transition metal chemistry and coordination compounds, nuclear chemistry, and an introduction to organic chemistry.|
|Organic Chemistry||General principles and theories of organic chemistry. Preparation, properties, mechanisms of reactions and uses of the aliphatic compounds, basic spectroscopy, introduction to aromatic compounds, coverage of functional groups pertinent to biologically important molecules (such as alcohols, carbonyls, carboxylic acids and derivatives, amines), and an introduction to biochemically important molecules.|
|Biochemistry||Chemistry related to life processes in plants and animals. Included is a study of enzymes and metabolism as well as carbohydrate, lipid, protein, and nucleic acid chemistry.|
|Quantitative Analysis||Volumetric and gravimetric analysis and an introduction to visible spectroscopic theory and methods.|
|Instrumental Analysis||Introduction to the theory and practice of instrumental methods of chemical analysis. Electrometric and electrogravimetric methods, spectrometric methods and atomic spectrometry, analytical separation theory and methods, various methods of chromatography and ion adsorption, and titrations in nonaqueous solutions.|
Evangel University's world-class faculty is made up of caring, Christian professionals who are distinguished in their fields and dedicated to the development of tomorrow's Christian leaders.
A chemistry concentration is an excellent complement to majors such as Biology, Biology Education, Psychology, Government, Public Administration, and International & Multicultural Studies.
No special requirements for this program.
