  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
University rank #189 (QS) , TX,
We offer programs leading to degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science at Texas A&M University, both of which are suitable as terminal degree programs as well as for preparation for more advanced study in Chemistry and related areas or as preparation for many professional programs in a variety of career fields.


Chemistry profoundly influences the way we live. A strong background in chemistry provides a solid foundation for a variety of careers of major importance in the twenty-first century.

Prior to 1966, the principal role of the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M University was to teach service courses to students in the Colleges of Agriculture and Engineering. Only a few faculty members at that time conducted research programs, and these were fairly modest, with minimal external funding and relatively few graduate students. In 1966, the Department of Chemistry (along with four other departments at Texas A&M) was formally earmarked by the University for development into those that would serve as flagship departments of a major research department. To this end, Arthur E. Martell was appointed Department Head, and given a mandate by the University administration to develop the research and graduate education in the department into nationally recognized programs of excellence.
