What if you had the opportunity to spend an entire year learning analytical microscopy from the leading experts in the field of materials sciences? And what if you could do this prior to your graduation from college?
Microscopy majors and minors study for three years at their home university or college 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 are immersed in practical hands-on training courses in the major areas of chemical microscopy and materials analysis, and learn alongside industry professionals. Following each course, our 3+1 students must complete a week-long practicum geared to reinforce the theory and skills learned in class. Students graduate with a bachelor’s degree in either applied microscopy or chemical microscopy, giving them the education and experience needed to pursue a career in materials sciences, forensic sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, environmental science, government and military fields, among others.
For students looking to earn science credit, but not interested in declaring a microscopy major or minor, can attend a 1-week intensive courses and receive credit at their home college or university. This collaborative effort draws on the strengths of each institution, and provides students with real-world learning experiences that will be immediately applicable and relevant in today’s job market.
