Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Through the Department of Chemistry, courses (CHEM) are offered at the undergraduate level for students pursuing the Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S.) in Chemistry, for students majoring in other disciplines wishing to pursue a minor in Chemistry, and for students in other academic areas requiring some preparation in Chemistry. Although only one undergraduate degree (the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry) is offered, two concentrations leading to this degree are possible for majors: (1) an American Chemical Society (ACS) approved concentration and (2) a pre-medical and a pre-dental concentration. Both concentrations are composite programs of study, and neither concentration requires the declaration of an official minor in another academic discipline. The ACS approved concentration is designed to prepare students for professional careers as chemists and to ensure their preparation for graduate study. Members of the Department are housed on the fourth floor of the New Science Building with the Department Office located in Suite 403.
