GO FOR A POSITIVE REACTION With a chemistry or biochemistry degree from our American Chemical Society-accredited department, you could end up working on a cure for cancer; monitoring the ozone layer that protects us from the sun; researching superior energy solutions (i.e., battery technology or solar panels); developing new textiles, cosmetics or pharmaceutical products; or solving water-pollution problems. Our program combines rigorous academics with extensive opportunities for research and work in the lab. You’ll gain a solid foundation in the math and the physical sciences while developing your critical-thinking, problem-solving, teamwork and leadership skills. These skills are in demand in today’s workforce. Large institutions just can’t provide the individualized attention you’ll find here. Even as a freshman, you’ll have the opportunity to be in the lab working with real professors – not graduate assistants or lab instructors. Throughout your four years, you’ll have the chance to design and conduct your own experiments, work on independent projects, assist professors with grant-funded research, present your research at regional and/or national conferences, and possibly even co-author an article for an international chemistry journal. The opportunities open to you are truly incredible! Here, you won’t get lost in the crowd. You’ll be an elite chemistry/biochemistry student – part of our family. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships. Our dedicated professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, research, internships, co-ops, and post-graduate or career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success – in college and beyond. Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to make important scientific contributions. You’ll be armed with the knowledge, hands-on experience and critical-thinking skills needed for success – no matter where your path leads you. OPPORTUNITY ABOUNDS RESEARCH TAKES CENTER STAGE Ninety-five percent of our chemistry/biochemistry students work side-by-side with ONU professors on important research projects. Funding for these projects comes from an array of sources, including the National Science Foundation, Ohio Sea Grant, U.S. Geological Survey, the American Chemical Society and, of course, ONU. GET INVOLVED Join a professional organization, and you’ll learn about opportunities in your field and meet new people. Students in ONU’s chapter of the American Chemical Society, for example, plan social gatherings, sponsor guest speakers and attend career fairs. Furthermore, the department also sponsors a chapter of the Gamma Sigma Epsilon chemistry honorary, which helps promote academic excellence and undergraduate research scholarship in chemistry. Being part of these organizations helps you build your professional network of colleagues. SCIENTISTS IN THE HOUSE Every year, we bring renowned science scholars to campus to share their discoveries – and their journeys – with students. The Kritzler Lectureship in Chemistry, for example, brings distinguished chemists to campus each year to present major new developments in their field. You’ll get the chance to meet and interact with each speaker. THINK SUCCESS ALLISON WILLIAMSON BS WITH A MAJOR IN CHEMISTRY ’13 “ONE OF THE SIMPLEST MEASURES OF SUCCESS IS TO BE ABLE TO SAY THAT YOU LOVE YOUR JOB AND LOOK FORWARD TO GOING INTO WORK IN THE MORNING. SOME PEOPLE AREN’T ABLE TO SAY THAT, BUT I CAN WITH COMPLETE SINCERITY. I CAN’T THANK MY ONU PROFESSORS ENOUGH FOR HOW WELL THEY PREPARED ME TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE WORKFORCE. THEY PASSED ON KNOWLEDGE, ADVICE AND ALSO PRACTICAL SKILLS, LIKE HOW TO WORK EFFICIENTLY AND SAFELY IN THE LAB.” In high school, Allison Williamson excelled in chemistry. Her uncle, a biochemist in cancer research, showed her that science has the potential to improve quality of life. Allison decided to make chemistry her career path. At ONU, she became a founding member of the chemistry honorary Gamma Sigma Epsilon. She was also active in ONU’s chapter of the Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS). This group afforded her fun opportunities, like carving the entire periodic table of pumpkins and making ice cream using liquid nitrogen. SMACS also funded her participation in the national conference for the American Chemical Society where she presented research. Today, Allison is a research chemist for Lubrizol Corporation in Wickliffe, Ohio, a specialty company that manufactures additives for use in engine oils, transmission fluids, hydraulic fluids, gear oils and more. She travels nationally and internationally to the company’s plants where she troubleshoots problems and provides support. OUTCOMES AND COURSES SOLID OUTCOMES Over the past five years, an average of 95 percent of our chemistry/biochemistry majors were employed full-time or enrolled in professional or graduate school within six months of graduation. Our chemistry students consistently obtain impressive internships and Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) positions for the summer. Our graduates get accepted into top-notch graduate schools, including the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine, Cornell University, MIT, the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, the University of California Berkeley, Ohio State University (dental and optometry programs), Michigan State University and Yale University. COURSES You can earn a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry or chemistry with an optional ACS-accredited concentration or a Bachelor of Arts in chemistry. Additionally, you can be a pre-medical student with any of these degrees, or you can pursue teacher licensure in chemistry. Here are some of the courses you can take as a chemistry or biochemistry major: Organic chemistry Physical chemistry Medicinal chemistry Analytical chemistry Inorganic chemistry Polymer chemistry Organic synthesis Biochemistry [-]
