Degrees and Programs

  • The BS degree in chemistry is recommended in preparation for graduate study leading to research oriented careers in chemistry, professional applications of chemistry, or post-secondary education.

  • The BS degree in chemistry, biochemistry emphasis, is recommended for students preparing for careers in medicine or dentistry as well as graduate study, research or teaching biochemistry, molecular biology, or biotechnology.
  • The BA degree is the preferred degree for high school teaching, pre-paramedical fields, and some business applications.
