Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
Bachelor of Science in Chemistry
The B.S. Chemistry degree (American Chemical Society (ACS) certified) is designed for students interested in going on to graduate school in chemistry or biochemistry or entering the job market as professional chemists. ACS certification is important because it provides a mechanism for external program assessment by other professional chemists. It also established standards for curricula, budget, equipment, staffing, administrative, and library support that is necessary to ensure a viable program. Our B.S. graduates have successfully gone on to Ph.D. programs while others have entered the job-market.
