About the Program

Because an understanding of chemistry is essential to virtually every field of science, technology and medicine, chemists enjoy a very broad range of fascinating career options, including medicine and genetic, pharmaceutical and commercial research. Chemistry majors select one of two concentrations:

General Chemistry

  • What you'll study - General, organic and physical chemistry; general biology; microbiology; biochemistry; calculus
  • Career Paths - Medicine,medical and industrial research, education

Biochemistry

  • What you'll study - General, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry; calculus
  • Career Paths - Medicine, pharmaceutical and medical research, education

Both tracks also provide strong preparation for students wishing to attend graduate school.

Please also take note of the Common Core and General Education Programs required of all Bachelor of Science Candidates.
