Chemistry

Program Learning Outcomes

1. The student will solve problems utilizing inorganic chemical concepts (stoichiometry, colligative properties, acid/base).

2.   The student will describe the structure, bonding, and reactivity of organic molecules.

3.   The student will describe reaction mechanisms and synthesis of organic compounds.
 
4.  The student will perform laboratory experiments involving a variety of chemical techniques and will communicate analysis of results in writing.
 
5. The student will apply principles of molecular nature of matter and its changes(chemical reactions, electron configuration, electronic trends).
 
6. The student will apply skills of acid/base and redox concepts to chemical reactions.
 
7.  The student will apply spectroscopic techniques for structural determination of organic compounds.
