The Department of Chemistry and Physical Sciences offers degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry that require 72 credits of coursework in the areas of Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Biology.
While arming students with a solid background in both theoretical and laboratory chemistry, students have enough room in the curriculum to couple their chemistry degree with other programs — such as education, computer information systems, or business — to better prepare them for interdisciplinary careers like patent or environmental law or science writing.
Physical Science does not have a major at The College of St. Scholastica, but provides support for programs such as Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Health Sciences, and Education.
Graduates from the program often find work in industrial, government, or academic laboratory positions or move on to graduate school in Chemical and Biological Sciences or numerous professional schools in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy or physical therapy.
Students obtain a broad base of knowledge in chemistry and the supporting math and science fields along with significant laboratory skill development.
Specifically graduates of the program will be prepared to:
The B.S./B.A. Chemistry and B.S. Biochemistry degrees as well as the Physical Sciences coursework are all offered in a traditional, on-campus format at our main Duluth campus.
Traditional undergraduate students must first be accepted to St. Scholastica. Visit our traditional undergraduate admissions section for more information.
