 Assessment of Student Learning

Biochemistry B.S. and Molecular Biology B.S. Program Outcomes

 

Aside from the following learning outcomes specific to the discipline which follow; students earning the degree will be able to apply their technical knowledge to global and societal issues using ethical reasoning in a manner, which demonstrates, and appreciation of cultural differences.

Outcomes:

  • Students earning the degree will have acquired a fundamental knowledge base in the major sub-disciplines of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

  • Students earning the degree will have gained experience in using the current tools employed by professionals in the field of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

  • Students earning the degree will have developed chemical and/or biochemical intuition about these abstract disciplines which allow them to visualize how chemical and biochemical reactions proceed, what governs the rate at which they occur and what dictates the extent to which they occur

  • Using critical thinking and quantitative skills, students earning the degree will be able to apply their acquired professional knowledge to solve problems in the fundamental areas of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

  • Students earning the degree will be able to effectively communicate (orally and in written form) technical information in the discipline to other professionals in the field.

  • Students earning the degree will be able to apply their experience with lab techniques and data analysis to responsibly design, safely perform, and critically analyze the results of experiments which involve 1) the measurement of biochemical quantities, 2) the synthesis and purification of biochemical reaction products and 3) the simulation or modeling of biochemical systems
