Bachelor of Arts, Chemistry Major

This degree is less concentrated than the Bachelor of Science degree and is often chosen by students considering a health-related profession such as dentistry, medicine, or osteopathy, or may be planning to teach science at the secondary level. A minor is required in some other field, along with a foreign language competency.

Bachelor of Science, Chemistry Major

This degree provides the strongest background for students pursuing a career in chemistry or a related science. A selection of advanced elective courses is available to prepare students for study and research in graduate school.
