What will I learn?

Program Overview

Chemistry is the “central science.” Such diverse subjects as art, anthropology, geology, biology, materials science, environmental science, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, medicine and psychology have areas in which fundamental principles and process details are understood in terms of chemistry.

Our undergraduate program offers BA and BS degrees with a BS/American Chemical Society certification option and with BS/emphases in biological and materials chemistry.

In addition to the traditional areas of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, we have faculty in a number of fertile cross-disciplinary areas such as bioanalytical, bioorganic and biophysical chemistry; electrochemistry; environmental chemistry, photochemistry, and materials chemistry.

After You Graduate

One of the attractive features of a chemistry degree is the flexibility it offers students with regard to career opportunities. Chemistry majors gain valuable critical reasoning, analytical and laboratory skills that allow them to enter a wide array of graduate and professional programs or find immediate employment in an industrial position.

Notable employers include pharmaceutical, petroleum and large chemical companies, as well as private laboratories and small industries. Depending upon the industry, the responsibilities of the baccalaureate chemist range from being completely independent to functioning as a technician. Baccalaureate chemists also find employment in sales and marketing, as there is a high level of demand for instruments, chemicals and supplies.
