The Major

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers programs of study leading to the degrees of bachelor of science in chemistry, bachelor of arts in chemistry, and bachelor of science in biochemistry.

The B.A. and B.S. programs may also be combined with a variety of other academic minors and majors including biology, mathematics, and business studies. The B.A. chemistry program is particularly well suited for those planning on seeking admission to medical or dental school as well as other health professions graduate programs. The flexibility within the B.A. offers ample opportunity for inclusion of biochemistry, statistics, psychology, and social science courses required for admission. See the Premedical Sciences and Health Professions Programs  section for more information.

Participation in an undergraduate research project guided by members of the faculty is strongly encouraged in all programs. Research is conducted within the College’s facilities or at a variety of research institutions across the United States. The results of these original research projects are often presented by students at regional and national meetings of professional societies.
