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.


Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, Pre- Med, DNIMAS program (BS.CHM.PM.DNIMAS)

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.

Pre-Med DNIMAS offers a rigorous and demanding B.S. Chemistry/Pre-Med program to students who qualify.
