A Degree in Chemistry

The bachelor of science in chemistry is a traditional undergraduate chemistry curriculum designed to meet the bachelor of science (BS) degree requirements outlined by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The program provides students a complete foundational experience focused in the chemical sciences through extensive classroom instruction, guided laboratory experiences, and independent research experiences studying the composition, structure, states, and behavior of matter in both living and non-living systems.

The program further aims to provide students with a wealth of hands-on analytical and instrumental experience studying chemical systems; in this context, students must complete over 400 hours of laboratory work via a combination of required and elective laboratory courses and independent research with faculty prior to graduation.

Careers in Chemistry

This rigorous Chemistry pathway will prepare students for a broad range of careers and graduate academic programs in the physical sciences. This may include work in traditional chemistry-oriented industries, such as the oil and gas, energy, defense, environmental, materials, consumer products, food & beverage, forensics, medical, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as softer fields where chemical expertise is sought (i.e. law, public policy, medicine, and public health).
