Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry

USA

What will I learn?

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry (DCB) at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) represents all branches of chemistry, from materials chemistry to chemical biology. Our 44 faculty, including two Nobel Laureates, a graduate program in Chemistry and Biochemistry, postdoctoral researchers, and staff are dedicated to exploring the frontiers of chemical science. Our undergraduate program offers the following degrees: Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Chemistry, Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemistry, and the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Biochemistry.

A two-year core curriculum in chemistry, mathematics, and physics lays a solid foundation for the required and elective coursework of the upper division majors. These upper-division courses add breadth and specialization to the program. Undergraduate students are encouraged to undertake independent study and research projects; many join departmental research groups during their junior and senior years. Our program provides students with academic and faculty advisors to assist them with course selection, course substitution, and other matters pertaining to their academic careers. Students are highly encouraged to meet with their major advisors throughout their time at UCSB.

Admission to this major is contingent upon successful completion of all courses in preparation for the major with the designated grade-point average. Students who are completing these preparatory requirements will have "pre-major" status.
