Chemistry

Bachelor of Arts
School of Sciences and Social Sciences

Broadly based in the liberal arts tradition, the B.A. in Chemistry has been designed for students interested in careers in areas that use chemistry as a base, such as the health-related professions, pharmaceutical marketing, secondary science education, chemistry-related industry, and/or entrance to graduate school. By combining this major with any one of a number of majors or minors, considerable flexibility is provided to the student. A specific articulation with the Education department (secondary option) is available and allows students to complete a dual major (B.A. in Chemistry, B.S. in Education) with Chemistry certification.
