B.S. in Chemistry


The Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry provides an opportunity for a chemistry major to take a more rigorous calculus-based course of study in chemistry. This option prepares the student for graduate study in chemistry and for most entry-level positions as chemists in industry and government.

For continuation in the major, the student must maintain a cumulative degree average of 2.0 or better in chemistry courses numbered 300 and above.
