What Will I Learn?

The B.S. chemistry program provides you with the same sound foundation in the basic areas of inorganic, organic, analytical, and physical chemistry as does the B.A. program; but the additional coursework in biochemistry, inorganic chemistry and advanced analytical chemistry (instrumentation) satisfies the American Chemical Society requirements for certification. The core of 57 chemistry credits (including a required research experience, advanced writing and chemistry seminar), combined with 8 credits each of mathematics and physics prepares you for your future as a professional in the field of chemistry. Up to 30 available elective credits allow students to also select courses as pre-professional requirements for graduate study in medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry.
