Course Information

Applied Microscopy Program and Degree Overview

Microscopy is used every day in a wide range of industries. This program will give you an “edge over the competition” with in-depth training on the use of microscopes and practical applications for sample analysis.

Our program gives you an opportunity to take advantage of our partnership with the Hooke College of Applied Sciences, internationally known for its excellent reputation for materials characterization and identification through microscopy and microanalysis. It is widely regarded by industry, academia and government institutions as “the premier microscopy resource.”

You can earn your bachelor of science degree in 80 semester hours of study. Of the required hours, many are completed through mandatory classes in general, organic and analytical chemistry, biology, forensic science, instrumental analysis, calculus and physics.

In addtion to our courses at CUC, you will have two semesters at the Hooke College of Applied Sciences. These hours include required courses in polarized light microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, infrared and Raman microspectroscopy, particle isolation, and manipulation and optical crystallography techniques.

You can choose your remaining hours of credit from a list of Hooke College of Applied Sciences courses. Students must earn grades of “B” or better in all coursework at Concordia and the Hooke College of Applied Sciences to earn the bachelor of science degree.
