Prior to entering the junior year at John Jay, students must complete the John Jay course CHE 220, Quantitative Analysis, which is a pre-requisite for the fall semester junior course, CHE 320 Instrumental Analysis I. CHE 220 is offered every term at John Jay, including both five-week summer sessions.

*Students are required to take particular courses in some areas of the Common Core that fulfill both general education and major requirements. If students do not take the required courses in the Common Core, they will have to take additional credits to complete their degree requirements.
**Whichever flexible core category is not fulfilled at QCC will be completed at John Jay, as stipulated by the waiver granted by CUNY.
All students must complete two (2) WI designated classes to fulfill degree requirements.

Recommended Course Sequence

The number of credits you take each year will determine when you graduate. To graduate on time, you are strongly encouraged to enroll in at least 30 credits toward your degree during the calendar year, including fall and spring semesters and winter and summer sessions.

Prior to entering the junior year at John Jay, students must complete the John Jay course CHE 220, Quantitative Analysis, which is a pre-requisite for the fall semester junior course, CHE 320 Instrumental Analysis I. CHE 220 is offered every term at John Jay, including both five-week summer sessions.

4 credits (at John Jay)

Pre-requisites are CH 151 and 152 at QCC or CHE 103 and 104 at John Jay

Notes:

  1. Students who do not place into MA 441 (Analytical Geometry and Calculus I) will need to take the pre-requisite credit courses indicated above, which do not count toward the program requirements.
  2. Each of these Flexible Core courses should be selected from a different category (A, B, C, or D). Whichever flexible core category is not fulfilled at QCC will be completed at John Jay, as stipulated by the waiver granted by CUNY.
  3. All students must complete two (2) WI-designated classes to fulfill degree requirements.
  4. Students in degree programs must complete any required remedial speech courses before graduation.
  5. Students are required to take particular courses in some areas of the Common Core that fulfill both general education and major requirements. If students do not take the required courses in the Common Core, they will have to take additional credits to complete their degree requirements.

Student Learning Outcomes for Academic Programs

Dual/Joint A.S. in Science for Forensic Science leading to the B.S. in Forensic Science at John Jay College Catalog Year 2017-18

General Education Outcomes

  1. Communicate effectively through written and oral forms
  2. Use analytical reasoning to identify issues or problems and evaluate evidence in order to make informed decisions
  3. Reason quantitatively as required in various fields of interest and in everyday life
  4. Apply information management and digital technology skills useful for academic research and lifelong learning
  5. Discipline specific outcomes: A robust general education is founded on the knowledge, concepts, methods and perspectives that students gain through study of the social sciences and history, the natural sciences, the arts and the humanities. These disciplinary studies stimulate intellectual inquiry, global awareness, and cultural and artistic appreciation; they equip students to make informed judgments and engage with life beyond the classroom.
    1. Apply concepts and perspectives from history or the social sciences to examine the formation of ideas, human behavior, social institutions, or social processes and to make informed judgments
    2. Apply concepts and methods of the natural and physical sciences to examine natural phenomena and to make informed decisions
    3. Apply aesthetic and intellectual criteria to examine or create works in the humanities and the arts and to make informed judgments

Program Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate competency in the concepts and methods of the foundation mathematics and sciences courses required for transfer to the junior year in Forensic Science at John Jay College: general chemistry, organic chemistry, general biology, calculus, and calculus physics.
  2. Apply concepts learned in the classroom and make conclusions based on scientific thinking
  3. Work collaboratively in the laboratory to acquire and analyze data and to solve problems
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities as they relate to the sciences
