Overview

The Chemistry program of San Francisco State University can be combined with another degree or minor to develop the unique synthesis of experience needed for careers in health professions, forensic science, environmental science, regulatory affairs, chemical engineering, patent law, management, sales, marketing, technical writing, scientific journalism, library science, and art restoration.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate an understanding of key concepts and an ability to solve problems in the five chemistry sub-disciplines: analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.
  • Perform basic chemistry laboratory procedures, including the use of modern instrumentation, for the synthesis, separation, isolation, analysis and characterization of molecules.
  • Effectively communicate the results of scientific experiments in oral reports, technical graphics and written reports.
  • Demonstrate the retention and synthesis of prior learning in advanced classes.
  • Search the chemical literature for published work relevant to a project of interest, read and understand technical literature related to the discipline.
  • Draw on classroom knowledge to contribute to solutions of problems encountered in a laboratory.
  • Articulate an understanding of the relationship between chemistry and related disciplines such as biological science, materials science and environmental science.
  • Contribute to solving problems encountered in chemistry as part of a team.
  • Understand the key experiments that led to the development of chemical theories and models.

Career paths

This program also provides excellent preparation for high school science teachers. Students planning to become K–12 chemistry or science teachers should note that additional preparation beyond the major is required to meet the breadth requirements and should consult with the credential advisor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry to review the state-mandated requirements.
