Students graduating with majors in chemistry or biochemistry have tremendous career potential in medicine, law, research, teaching, working in industry (including sales) and more. Nearly 100 percent of our Bachelor of Science chemistry or biochemistry majors who apply to medical schools have been accepted. 

Overview

All chemistry and biochemistry majors have the opportunity to get involved in research with our faculty. Many of our students are co-authors on published papers and several are co-inventors in patent applications. Research is conducted during the academic year and also in summer, with summer research students being paid a stipend. Each year we send 10-15 students to the spring meeting of the American Chemical Society to present their research results.

The department also has a number of scholarships available for students. There are two scholarships available for incoming freshmen and a variety of additional scholarships and awards available for current students. Our students are also competitive for awards at the department, college, university and national level. Finally, students can apply to be laboratory assistants, a paid position helping prepare the laboratory component of our courses.
