Microscopy degrees are in demand for areas such as homeland security, criminalistics, food contamination, coating and packaging and polymer research and development. Learn the latest skills and techiques from the world leaders in microscopy while earning a degree in microscopy.
Microscopy majors study for three years at Concordia University Chicago to gain a solid liberal arts education and the required degree prerequisites in general, organic, and analytical chemistry; biology; instrumental analysis; calculus; and physics.
During the fourth year of study, students work alongside expert faculty at the Hooke College of Applied Sciences and industry professionals who attend the same courses using state-of-the-art microscopes and instruments.
Students graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Applied Microscopy, giving them the education and experience needed to pursue a career in materials sciences, forensic sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, environmental science, art conservation, and government and military fields, among others. Entering the job with real-world experience gives our graduates a distinct advantage over traditional science majors.
Students earning a degree in Applied Microscopy spend their final year at Hooke College of Applied Sciences, where majors complete required credit hours by attending one-week intensive courses, followed by a week-long practicum project that reinforces all of the skills learned in class.
Applicants must apply for admission into the program through Concordia University-Chicago.
