The Department of Chemistry offers courses leading to the B.A. or the B.S. in Chemistry degree. Students may also elect to minor in chemistry. Students interested in chemistry should talk to a chemistry advisor as early as possible. The B.A. degree emphasizes the liberal arts with specialization in chemistry and offers the opportunity to develop a broad background for students preparing for a variety of careers or planning to enter professional school in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, law, or business. The B.S. in Chemistry degree offers a greater concentration in chemistry and is recommended for students planning careers in engineering and the chemical industry or for those who plan to pursue graduate study. A senior research thesis and seminar is required and designed to introduce students to modern advanced techniques and approaches to chemical research in conjunction with a faculty advisor.
Both degree programs offer courses in the basic areas of analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry and are supplemented by chemistry electives. Modern scientific instrumentation is available and incorporated into all courses of the curriculum.
