The BS in Chemistry is a rigorous course of study that incorporates more math and laboratory experience.This degree track is intended primarily to meet the needs of a student who wishes to seek employment in the chemical industry or to prepare for graduate study in Chemistry.

 General education coursework complements the Chemistry major by teaching students to synthesize a range of knowledge, perspectives and creative methods; identify and respond creatively and effectively to local and global challenges; address complex societal issues; understand the importance of and develop the capacities for self-assessment and ethical reasoning; and evaluate arguments and address complex issues using quantitative analysis and scientific reasoning. Students in the Chemistry programs at St. Edward’s University are interested in:

  • Finding cures for disease
  • Creating new materials for product innovation
  • Monitoring sources of pollution and contamination of chemicals that affect the environment
  • Analyzing evidence and samples for clues to solve crimes
  • Producing nutritious food and feed to sustainably support the population
  • Teaching Chemistry to the next generation

Both degree tracks provide comprehensive exploration of chemistry that will prepare students for advanced programs or professional careers. Coursework spans the breadth of each of the five chemistry sub-disciplines: analytical, organic, inorganic, physical and biochemistry.
