The chemistry department offers a bachelor of arts degree in chemistry, a bachelor of science degree in medicinal chemistry, and a bachelor of science degree in chemistry with American Chemical Society (ACS) certification.
The Chemistry Department offers Pre-Professional tracks for Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Dental, Pre-Medicine, and Pre-Veterinary programs, as well as many other of our Pre-Professional and Cooperative programs.
In addition to the normal chemistry major, the department offers an interdisciplinary major in environmental chemistry. Minors are also offered in chemistry, biochemistry and environmental chemistry.
The mission of an active, modern, undergraduate program of chemical education goes beyond the training of professional chemists. Chemistry, the science of the changes in matter, is important in other disciplines and in the intellectual lives of students seeking a liberal education. Consistent with the goals of the College, the Department of Chemistry is firmly committed to the values inherent in a liberal arts education. It sees these values as complementary to the major program in chemistry and seeks to foster them in its service role to students from other departments.
