Chemistry is the central science, encompassing elements of physics, biology, and mathematics, as well as unique elements of its own. The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department offers four undergraduate degree programs in Chemistry (B.A., B.S.), which are designed to focus on individual student interests. At the master's level, the department offers a Master of Science in Chemistry (M.S.) and a Master of Science in Teaching (M.S.T.). A doctoral degree program in Chemistry (Ph.D.) is also available. The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) is a liberal arts degree intended for students planning professional careers in chemistry-related professions. These include health professions (medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy), environmental consulting, technical sales, and secondary school teaching. This degree is often pursued by students studying in related disciplines (e.g., biological sciences, geology, and psychobiology) who wish to obtain a second major or a second degree.

The Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) is designed for students preparing for professional careers as chemists in industry, government, or academic research. Students interested in pursuing advanced graduate studies in chemistry, biochemistry, or related fields should also follow one of the B.S. degree programs. Three B.S. degree programs in Chemistry are offered:

  • The Comprehensive B.S. Program offers a rigorous program of study in all aspects of inorganic, organic, analytical, biochemical, and physical chemistry.
  • The ACS-Approved B.S. Program offers similar rigorous training in all aspects of chemistry as the basic track, but includes some additional requirements corresponding with the certification guidelines of the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
    An ACS-certified degree can offer advantages in job placement and graduate school admission.
  • The Biochemistry B.S. Program is designed for students pursuing careers in biochemistry and related disciplines, such as molecular biology, biophysics, and pharmacology. Additionally, premedical students who wish to pursue a research-oriented curriculum might be interested in this program.
