Major: Chemistry

Our faculty are dedicated teachers, and the department is also a major research institution with about 150 graduate and postdoctoral students working in the various laboratories. We offer a Bachelors of Arts, Bachelors of Science with American Chemical Society (ACS) Certification, and a variety of Bachelors of Science degrees with different specializations (with ACS Certification being optional). This is a unique opportunity for students to combine two areas in which they have an interest (e.g., chemistry and biology, chemistry and physics, etc.). While the University does not offer Biochemistry as an undergraduate degree program, we offer a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemistry with a Specialization in Biochemistry.
