The Chemistry major follows a curriculum that helps students acquire a strong foundation in basic concepts and principles of modern chemistry while gaining an appreciation of chemistry’s central role in society. All courses are taught and all research is facilitated by faculty members who are generous with their time and knowledge. Students can expect individual attention in their small lecture and laboratory classes. The course work is designed to help the student develop the critical thinking, problem-solving, laboratory, computer, data acquisition and analysis, and research skills needed to be successful in their future endeavors. The LECOM Pre-Pharmacy Concentration meets the demands of the students who plan to supplement the bachelor’s degree by enrolling in the LECOM Pharmacy School.
After completing three years at Saint Francis University and a successful year at the LECOM School of Pharmacy, the student is awarded a B.S. from Saint Francis University in Chemistry. The conferral of the Doctor of Pharmacy degree occurs after successful completion of all coursework at LECOM and by recommendation of the LECOM School of Pharmacy.
