The Chemistry Department offers two degree options. The BA major is primarily designed for students intending to work in chemical laboratories following graduation, students planning to teach who need an endorsement in chemistry, and pre-professional (pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-veterinary, pre-pharmacy) students. The BS major is a more rigorous course of study designed for students wishing to continue their study of chemistry at the graduate level. We also offer a minor in chemistry.
Students who intend to major in chemistry and students who intend to prepare for medical, dental, veterinary, or pharmacy school are urged to select Fundamentals of Chemistry their first year.
