The BS in Chemistry is fully approved by the American Chemical Society and gives students a comprehensive, broadly based training in Chemistry. Chemistry majors take courses specifically designed for them starting their first year. These classes are small and are not part of the curriculum for other science majors. This ensures that chemistry majors get close attention from the Chemistry faculty early in their college careers and are learning material that is most important for them to succeed as chemists in the future. Completion of the Chemistry degree will prepare you for graduate study in Chemistry, or for a career as a chemist in the chemical or pharmaceutical industry.
