Chemistry, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

Chemists study the structure and transformations of matter, detect and quantify chemical species, and create new substances. A degree in chemistry prepares a student for employment in a private or government laboratory; continuing studies in medical, pharmacy, dental, veterinary or law school; secondary school teaching; a position in business; or graduate study and research in the sciences or engineering.  The Chemistry B.S. degree allows students more breadth to their college degree where they can pair their chemistry studies with an emphasis in a discipline outside of chemistry

For additional programs and courses in this department, see Chemistry and Physics .
