Do you enjoy researching and discovering how different atoms, molecules and ions work and react with each other? Our B.S. in Chemistry program offers a rigorous but rewarding study of the major areas of chemistry. With this degree, you’ll study the areas of:
- Analytical Chemistry
- Instrumental Method of Analysis
- Organic Chemistry
- Physical Chemistry
Students will also get extensive laboratory experience in analytical methods, separation techniques, and spectroscopy.
A B.S. in Chemistry generally requires more science credits than a B.A. degree. This is because a B.S. in Chemistry gives you the opportunity and advantage to study and understand Chemistry at a deeper level and has fewer classes outside this area of study. If a student’s interest is solely in the research of biochemistry, organic chemistry, or other major areas of chemistry, this is the perfect degree.
On an average day, chemists and material scientists work in pharmaceutical or manufacturing laboratories and offices studying substances at the atomic and molecular levels and analyzing the ways in which the substances interact with one another. They typically work full time and keep regular hours. (BLS)
