About the department

We offer four tracks in Chemistry – two that are certified by the American Chemical Society (the BS in Biochemistry and the BS in Chemistry) and two are that liberal arts degrees (the BA in Biochemistry and the BA in Chemistry). 

The BS degrees are intensive science degrees requiring more than 75 credits of study. These degrees build a strong foundation for work in the chemical industry or for advanced study in Chemistry. The BA degrees provide you with opportunities to pursue related or even unrelated areas of study.
