About our Department

The Department of Chemistry offers two programs to accommodate the variety of backgrounds and interests of students with a desire to major in chemistry. Either degree is quite appropriate for students intending to teach in secondary school:

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Chemistry

  • For students who plan to enter industry or pursue graduate study in chemistry
  • Emphasis on mathematics and scientific applications

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Chemistry

  • For students preparing for the medical or paramedical professions
  • Stresses the biological aspects of chemistry

The department also offers majors in biochemistry and medical laboratory science.
