The chemistry major will provide you with an understanding of the unifying themes, as well as the diversity, of natural and synthetic materials and their importance within the environment and technology. You will be prepared for positions in industry and government or for advanced study in a variety of scientific disciplines. The B.A. degree is appropriate for students who desire greater flexibility in their undergraduate coursework. This flexibility may be used to incorporate a minor, a second major, a study abroad program or additional elective coursework.
- Small class sizes
- Emphasis on research
- Faculty who are experts in their field and who care about their students
Common careers for chemists include teacher, researcher, forensic and environmental scientist. Our graduates are also well-prepared for graduate study, including teacher credential programs and master’s research.
