Bachelor of Science in Chemistry
A Chemistry degree provides diverse employment opportunities as well as preparation for graduate and professional studies. The Chemistry major provides a broad knowledge of chemical concepts, processes and systems. Professors are committed to helping students pursue God’s call on their lives in addition to 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.
The Chemistry major is designed to produce chemists who are capable of working independently or as part of a team. Classes are designed to promote students’ comprehension at various disciplines (inorganic, organic, physical, and analytical) and include critical evaluation of chemical literature to foster skills in assessing scientific information. Students are provided with practical experiences through laboratory courses. Students are strongly encouraged to gain career-related experience prior to graduation in the form of work-study employment, internships, or summer research programs. The Chemistry major prepares students for conventional chemistry careers as well as health-related areas such as medicine and dentistry.
