Chemistry - Major
Requirements for a Major
Schreiner University offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in Chemistry. The chemistry program is committed to the liberal arts tradition with emphasis upon chemistry as an area of free inquiry. Students are not expected simply to master current chemistry knowledge. Rather, they are encouraged to understand chemistry as a dynamic body of knowledge. Methods of producing new knowledge and using concepts to further understanding are two major goals of the program. A student with a B.A. degree in chemistry with additional work in biology will meet all the requirements for medical, dental, veterinary and pharmacy schools. A student with a B.S. degree in chemistry will be highly employable with a bachelors degree. Those students wishing to pursue graduate studies in chemistry are encouraged to follow the B.S. degree plan. The chemistry program includes courses and experiences that will give the student a wide variety of laboratory techniques that are essential for further investigations either in education or industry.
