The bachelor of arts program in chemistry is an extremely flexible one with fewer required courses in chemistry and mathematics offering a wider scope of elective course opportunities, allowing students to tailor a program to meet their individual needs. This flexibility permits additional undergraduate preparation in other diverse areas such as business and economics, biology, mathematics, English, or education. Within the context of the bachelor of arts program, a number of dedicated programs have been developed that prepare students seeking to enter certain specialized careers.
The Pre-Medical/Dental Option
This is designed to prepare students intending to pursue careers in medicine and dentistry. Electives are dedicated to those courses required and/or strongly recommended for admission to medical or dental schools. See Premedical Sciences and Health Professions Programs for information.
