The Department of Chemistry offers the following Bachelor Programs:
Analytical Chemistry (M.S.)
The M.S. in analytical chemistry is a non-thesis degree designed for working professionals. This part-time, online program provides a foundation in separation science, spectroscopy, physical characterization, and method development. It also emphasizes communication, industrial leadership, statistics, and business principles.
Analytical Method Development (Certificate)
The Certificate in Analytical Methods Development program provides knowledge of techniques and devices for sampling in diverse media. Isolation, concentration, and fractionation and classes of analytes, as well as methods in complex matrices emphasizing methods development and validation, are discussed.
Analytical Spectroscopy (Certificate)
Learn theories and applications of spectroscopic transitions in structural elucidations and quantitative analysis. Topics include ultraviolet/visible, infrared, Raman and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, atomic absorption spectroscopy, atomic and flame emission spectroscopy, chemiluminescence, fluorescence, phosphorescence, light scattering, and refractometry.
Chemistry faculty research programs cut across the traditional boundaries to solve real-world problems in catalysis, pharmaceuticals, therapeutics, materials, and sustainable energy. The aim of this program is to develop chemists who are able to think creatively and critically.
The Certificate in Chromatography program provides the fundamentals of separation science theory, the concepts of separation science, and their applications in solving analytical problems. The program also introduces the operating principles and applications of state-of-the-art LC/GC instrumentation and analysis.
Regulatory Science (Certificate)
Many life science industries are subject to U.S. regulations, especially in the fields of big pharma, food manufacturing, and biotechnology. Become well-versed in these regulations, plus the sciences behind them, with this certificate program.
