New degrees in forensic chemistry, biochemistry available

gcmsThe Department of Chemistry and Physics at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff has added two new bachelor’s degree options in chemistry which have been recently approved by the Arkansas Department of Higher Education: concentration in Forensic Chemistry. Both degrees are now open for enrollment in the fall semester.

The Forensics option is designed for students who wish to pursue careers in Forensic Science. Offered in collaboration with the department of criminal justice, students in this option will take courses in criminal justice as well as new courses in forensic chemistry.

The Biochemistry option is designed for students who either plan careers in the health professions or in biomedical research. The added emphasis on biochemistry and additional biology courses will assist students with professional school entrance exams and with courses taught in professional schools. It will also better prepare students who wish to pursue graduate degrees in the biomedical sciences and pursue research careers in these areas. This degree option would also be useful for students who wish to pursue advanced degrees and research careers in the agricultural sciences.

“We are very glad to be able to offer these new opportunities for our students,” said Chemistry and Physics Chairperson, Dr. Grant Wangila. “We believe that they will enhance the competitiveness of our students for science or health professional careers as well as open up new career opportunities.”
