The primary goal of the Department of Chemistry is to uphold a commitment to excellence in undergraduate education and to facilitate student success in a challenging major.  We offer three BS degree options: Chemistry, Chemistry:Biochemistry concentration, and Chemistry:STEM/Teaching concentration. Along with the relevant Biology courses, Chemistry provides an excellent preparation for professional health related fields such as medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy.  While many students pursue these career goals, others enter the chemical workforce directly after graduation.  Still other students enter graduate school to train to become research scientists.
