Bachelor of Arts

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.
