Degree Programs


Chemistry (B.S.)

This program is designed for students who are interested in technical careers in industry, government, or graduate work in chemistry. 

Chemistry (B.S.) - Biochemistry Concentration
Students seeking a preparation in biochemistry science may elect the biochemistry concentration within the chemistry program which is designed to prepare students for careers or graduate study in biochemistry and meets the recommended guidelines of both the American Society of Biological Chemists and the American Chemical Society.
Chemistry (B.S.) with Secondary Certification 
Students enrolled in this program of study obtain the degree of B.S. with secondary certification.
 Chemistry minor 
List of course requirements.

Chemistry (B.S.) - Business Concentration 

This program supplements the B.S. with courses designed to introduce the student to business models, practices and marketing techniques in preparation for a career where each of these two important fields meet.  List of course requirements to be added shortly.

Chemistry (B.S.) - Computational Chemistry Concentration 

Students interested in the influence of computational technology on chemistry may select this concentration which includes math and computer courses designed to provide a sound foundation in writing code as well as advanced mathematical techniques.  Students interested in graduate work in physical chemistry or chemical physics should strongly consider this concentration. 

Chemistry (B.S.) - Forensics Concentration 

Forensics is an exciting and important field which exists because of chemistry.  This concentration prepares a would-be chemist for the possibility of pursing a career in the forensics sciences. 

Chemistry (B.S.) - Environmental Science Concentration 

Students seeking a career or graduate work at the interchange of chemistry and environmental science should strongly consider this concentration which provides courses designed to strengthen the student's knowledge of the complex role chemistry plays in environmental systems. 

Biochemistry minor 

List of course requirements.

All chemistry majors will take a comprehensive examination in their junior year at a time and place designated by the department. A satisfactory performance in all areas of this examination is a requirement for departmental recommendation and ACS certification.
