Chemistry, B.A. - Clinical Concentration


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools and Departments

The Chemistry B.A. - Clinical Concentration is intended for those students who wish to combine a technical background in chemistry with a career as a medical lab analyst. Clinical chemists conduct research and develop laboratory procedures that help physicians make earlier, more precise diagnoses and tailor therapies for patients. As technology develops–in hot areas like molecular biology, vaccine development or transplant medicine–clinical chemists apply their knowledge to develop practical applications of these advances.

Student Learning Outcomes

Students majoring in chemistry with the B.A - Clinical Concentration degree will

  1. Demonstrate knowledge in the general theories of Chemistry in four of the five major areas: analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, and biochemistry
  2. Apply quantitative skills in solving complex problems
  3. Write effectively on chemical topics using correct grammar and a style appropriate for the discipline of chemistry
  4. Speak effectively on chemical topics in a format appropriate for the discipline of chemistry
  5. Apply their knowledge of chemical analysis, biochemistry and cell biology to solve medically relevant questions.
