Overview

The programme

Since a superior liberal arts education requires excellence in science education as well as in the humanities and social sciences, and since the Bethany College graduate in chemistry must be able to compete in the marketplace or in graduate and professional schools with students from technical colleges and universities as well as with those from other liberal arts colleges, the Physical Science Department strives to achieve the following:

  • Educate students in the latest theoretical and applied body of knowledge which constitutes the broad area of chemistry.
  • Enable students to acquire the laboratory skills necessary to perform the variety of analyses and operations which are expected of a BS chemistry graduate, including development of research skills.
  • Motivate students to think critically and to collaborate in exploring new ideas and novel solutions to problems.
  • Help students to become aware of changing career opportunities in both chemistry and as a preparation for health science fields such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and pharmacology.
