Undergraduate Program

 
 
A degree in chemistry or biochemistry enables a student to pursue a wide variety of careers: in research, production, sales, management, and teaching. These degrees are also an excellent preparation for professional studies in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, optometry, pharmacology, pharmacy, and law.  There are five divisions of chemistry – Analytical, Biochemistry,  Inorganic, Organic, and Physical. We have a total of 20 active faculty members. Chemistry majors who have completed the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree may receive American Chemical Society certification if they take one additional one-semester course which includes 1 credit of laboratory.
