We See Your Future in Chemistry
Explore the fascinating world of chemistry with a B.S. degree.
Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (BS.CHM)

The B.S. Chemistry degree prepares you for a career in industry and graduate school in chemistry or related disciplines. The Chemistry Department offers several chemistry based curricula choices leading to a B.S. degree in Chemistry: Chemistry, Chemistry with an emphasis in Pre-Medicine (not a degree in Pre-Medicine), and the dual degree B.S. in Chemistry-M.S. in Materials Science curriculum.

Chemistry Programs

All B.S. Chemistry programs provide you with a strong background in chemical knowledge, analytical and laboratory skills, oral and written communication development, and experiences working independently or in a team.

  • Chemistry Minor Core
    The American Chemical Society (ACS) requires that a minor in chemistry consist of a minimum of 20 credit hours and 200 laboratory contact hours in two different areas of chemistry beyond the first year general chemistry.
  • Pre-Med (BS.CHM.PM)
    B.S. Chemistry with an emphasis in Pre-Medicine prepares you for medical, dental, veterinary and other bio-related professional schools. Please be aware, this is not a degree in Pre-Medicine.
    Pre-Med DNIMAS offers a rigorous and demanding B.S. Chemistry/Pre-Med program to students who qualify.
    The Dozoretz National Institute for Mathematics and Applied Sciences (DNIMAS) offers a rigorous and demanding program to to qualifying students.  Successful completion of the DNIMAS program results in a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry.
  • Teacher Licensure
    Teacher Licensure combines chemistry and pedagogy, preparing students to work in K-12 education.
  • M.S. Materials Science
    M.S. Materials Science is a 5 year program that further prepares students to assume positions of leadership in materials-related jobs.
