THE JOURNEY OF MY LIFE

I was provided a comprehensive education that not only provided me a degree but also prepared me for a lifetime of learning. Small classes and accessible faculty made this university a great place to learn and grow. While I was enrolled in the university I offered a wide variety of great degree options.


Course Curriculum - 

The focus of my program was on the structure, composition, and reactions of matter. The curriculum was designed to familiarize us with the current views of these concepts. A deeper knowledge of chemistry was provided to us to solve many of humanity's problems like feeding the hungry, healing the sick, and bettering living conditions in general. My coursework in chemistry considered both experimental and theoretical topics and emphasized their interdependence as well.
