If you're committed to a challenging academic program in the sciences, consider immersing yourself in Concordia University's chemistry major. In addition to "in the classroom" experiences, you'll also have the opportunity to utilize one or more off-campus research facilities. An agreement with Reed College allows Concordia University students to take courses in basic nuclear chemistry and environmental assessment at the Reed Nuclear Reactor. The hands-on experience won't stop there. Nearly all of your science courses will include laboratories where you'll have the opportunity to refine your independent analytical reasoning skills.
Some of the country's largest chemical, semiconductor, and environmental companies are located in the Portland area and are consistently hiring both interns and full-time chemists. If you are a diligent student, committed to excelling in this rigorous program, you can discover numerous employment opportunities.
