Roy Meyler - B.S. Chemistry

Overview

Studying at the University of Kansas (KU) allowed me to develop an in-depth understanding of chemical principles; laboratory methods, including advanced instrumentation; communication of experimental results; and strong emphasis on analytical and logical problem solving.

The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Chemistry, consisted of a rigorous program with a full spectrum of chemistry courses as well as supporting courses in mathematics and physics. I also tailored my chemistry program towards specific objectives, facilitating the development of advanced knowledge and skills.

Notable electives:

Communications, English composition, analytical writing, politics, philosophy and ethics.
