Partnerships, scholarships, accelerated professional degrees, prestigious internships. Choosing Ursuline’s Chemistry program means you’re choosing a bright future.

A partnership with Cleveland State University allows Ursuline College to offer a chemistry major with the best characteristics of both a small college and a large university. At Ursuline, brilliant women learners taught by accomplished women who have earned the highest degrees and national attention in their male-dominated field. And at Cleveland State, the best of a co-ed urban research university for two upper-level courses. Women studying STEM at women’s colleges are more likely to advance through graduate programs in their field, and Ursuline’s first chemistry graduate affirmed that research, landing a fully funded fellowship to pursue her PhD in Polymer Engineering. What’s more, Chemistry majors at Ursuline are generously supported by the Hedy Mulhausen Endowed Scholarship, and students have completed prestigious internships and co-ops with the National Science Foundation, Sherwin-Williams Research and Development, and NASA Glenn Lewis’ Education and Research Collaborative Internship project.

Outcomes of the program:

  • You’ll gain extensive knowledge and critical problem-solving skills.
  • You’ll discover a commitment to continued learning.
  • You’ll develop technical and computer competencies.
  • Opportunity to apply for Ursuline’s distinguished 3+4 program in Pharmacy with Duquesne University.

A degree in chemistry allows students access to entry level positions in science-based industries, such as the chemical, polymer, environmental, forensic and pharmaceutical industries and government labs. When the bachelor’s degree is combined with a master’s degree in education, students can teach high school chemistry. Students can also combine a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with graduate degrees in chemistry, engineering, forensic science, environmental science, pharmacology, or other sciences as preparation for leadership positions in science-based industries, government labs, and post-secondary education.

A degree in Chemistry is also excellent preparation for professional schools in medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, veterinary medicine, and law. The addition of a few courses to the chemistry major core allows pre-medicine students to prepare for medical school admission.

The chemistry minor constitutes a valuable career development asset for future life scientists, attorneys, financial analysts, plant managers, marketing consultants, science journalists, textile designers, etc. Thus, it is recommended that the chemistry minor be combined with Ursuline majors such as biology, business, history, public relations, English, sociology, philosophy, psychology, or fashion to prepare students more completely for technical skills and leadership roles in their careers.

You’ll take the following classes, in addition to your Ursuline Core Curriculum, to fulfil the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry:

  • Physics 201/Lab – General Physics I
  • Physics 202/Lab – General Physics II
  • Physics 203/Lab – College Physics I with Calculus
  • Physics 204/Lab – College Physics II with Calculus
  • Mathematics 221 – Calculus I
  • Mathematics 222 – Calculus II
  • Mathematics 223 – Calculus III
  • Chemistry 105/Lab – Principles of Chemistry I
  • Chemistry 106/Lab – Principles of Chemistry II
  • Chemistry 221/Lab – Organic Chemistry I
  • Chemistry 222/Lab – Organic Chemistry II
  • Chemistry 320 – Survey of Physical Chemistry (Taken at Cleveland State University)
  • Chemistry 310/315 – Survey of Analytical Chemistry/Lab (Taken at Cleveland State University)
  • Chemistry 422/Lab – Biochemistry I
  • Chemistry 487 – Undergraduate Research or Chemistry 475 – Internship

 

To minor in Chemistry, take the following classes:

  • Chemistry 105/Lab – Principles of Chemistry I
  • Chemistry 106/Lab – Principles of Chemistry II
  • Chemistry 221/Lab – Organic Chemistry I
  • Chemistry 222/Lab – Organic Chemistry II
  • One of the following: Chemistry 422/Lab – Biochemistry I, Chemistry 475 –Internship, or Chemistry 487 – Undergraduate Research
